An effective enamelling technique which was probably developed by Celtic metal-workers and afterwards copied by the Anglo-Saxons. The process involved the melting of enamel into the incised hollows in a piece of metal. It was often employed in the decoration of the escutcheons on hanging bowls, on the roundels which supported the handles of the bowls.
