    It is a form of jewellery actually, made by die stamping metal
    'planchets' and adding powdered glass enamel, which is
    fired at high temperature and flows into the recesses.

    A more complex method of enameling is found on antique
    pocketwatch dials. They are ceramic with very fine enamel
    numbers and other added details.

    Enamel work or 'cloisonne', dates back to ancient Egypt.
    Regards,

    i think steve said it all !! but enamel process is amazing it dates back to the celtic art in the 2nd and 3rd BC it was also used by the romans and the anglo saxons and the process improved greatly over the centuries !! sadly enamel is not as common today being replaced by plastic because they are cheaper and easer to use !!

    well, my great granpa came over to US from Germany--but I'm not partial to the Deutschlanders because of it..I see a lot of their equipment in WW2 and now was/is good...they are/were a disciplined people--as was/is the Japanese---I admire both people greatly... I see the pins as part of that 'culture', possibly--thanks for replies..very interesting
