How do you identify cloisonne plate?

The simplest way is by touch. Cloisonne is the process in which enamel is "laid" into a piece by dividing it with gold wire. The process is then fired, and the result is the brilliant colors and delicate gold tracing. This process also produces an extremely fine mosaic effect which can be felt. The transfer method does not have the tiny mosaic feel, it is perfectly smooth and the cloisonne is not.
