Hi, just to be pedantic. I used to teach this at art school. ''CHAMPLEVE ENAMEL: A process in which the sections containing various colored enamels are carved out of the surface of the base, rather than formed by soldering thin strips of metal to the base, as in cloisonne enamel. Full article >>>''
    The Cinelli badges are acid etched to leave the raised fields (Champs Leve) then enamel filled and fired. Mark Stevens Evanton Scotland
