Generally speaking, the empty window enamel is first made of a complete enamel work with gold on the embryo base, the outline of the tiger pattern is drawn through a detailed process, and then the enamel is filled into the empty window space. With each firing of the enamel in the furnace, the risk of cracks in the glazed surface also increases, and the high failure rate makes the empty window enamel very precious. After a lot of trials, what finally appeared in the eyes of the world was a thin, crystal-clear finished product.
