Cloisonné, also called cell melting or cell enamel, is an artisan technique for enamel work. For production, thin wires or metal strips are soldered onto a carrier plate, which is usually made of silver, and differently colored glass flows are inserted between them.

Niello denotes an ornament on silver, more rarely gold, more recently also on copper and bronze, which consists of drawings engraved or pressed in by steel plates and filled in with a kind of black color. The black color itself is also called that.

From around 1895 - while still living in Munich - Auchentaller designed silver jewelry for the company of his father-in-law Georg Adam Scheid in Vienna - exclusively.

Georg Adam Scheid held a dominant position in the luxury goods market of the monarchy, with a very high export share to England, America, Russia and the Ottoman Empire. As such, pieces of jewelry were not signed by the artists, particularly Auchentaller expressly did not want this, as is evident from the letters to his father-in-law.
