The Iranian craftsmen of Sassanid era invented this art and Mongols spread it to India and other countries. The French tourist, Jean Chardin, who toured Iran during the Safavid rule, made a reference to an enamel work of Isfahan, which comprised a pattern of birds and animals on a floral background in light blue, green, yellow and red. This art, which can be also referred to as "the miniature on fire," is used for the ornamentation of the jewelry, dishes, and other objects and has a background of over 5000 years at its back. Some of the experts believe that it was the Iranians who created this art for the first time.

Enamel works can be washed with lukewarm water, soap and even ordinary detergents, and this does not cause any problem because the enamel is covered with a transparent glaze. You can wash them with lukewarm water and a sponge.
The biggest risk to the enamel is a separation of the decorated surface because of a mechanical impact. Hence, care should be taken while transporting the work. If a part of enamel is separated, it should be repaired immediately otherwise it can cause other parts to separate.
