Graviata

Graviata is an uncolored surface covering decoration etched into the enamel - but not through it - to the paste beneath. It is usually a feathery design of scrolling leaf-like patterns or can be of wave-like designs on the underside of rims on Qing dynasty Imperial wares. Common as surface covering decoration on the enameled background of "Peking"-bowls.
