"Enamel is a heat-fused glass paste colored by metal oxides and used to decorate metal surfaces. In medieval sources mina? Denoted glaze, glass, and, after the 11th century, enamel. Enamel was associated with lapidary, glassworking, and goldmithing crafts and was probably used primarily in place of precious stones before the 17th century. Anthony Jenkinson, a traveler to Persia in 968-71/1561-63, described an enameled and jeweled aigrette worn by the ruler of Širvan (I, pp. 367-68; first cited in Ivanov, Lukonin, and Smesova, p. 11). The medium was first used extensively in the mid-17th century, however. A variety of textual sources and a few datable examples suggest that at that time champlevé enameling and enamel painting—sometimes in slight relief, in transparent and opaque colors on gold, copper, and silver—began to appear in Persia."
