Decoupage originated in France in the 17th century and was based on ancient Siberian and Chinese artistic techniques. It spread through Europe and by the 18th century became fashionable aristocratic pastime, especially at the Italian, French, and English courts.
Decoupage is a time consuming technique which gives a beautiful effect. Decoupage is especially difficult on curved surfaces hence each pen pot takes several days to complete. It requires great skill to achieve consistently top quality results. Due to its manual and time consuming nature, decoupaged objects are usually made in small numbers and hence stand a good chance of becoming valuable collectibles.
