How much labor in Cloisonné vase?

How many hours of labor do you estimate it takes to produce a high-quality Chinese cloisonne vase, 12 inches tall? A couple of these vases are owned by the school that I teach at, and I would love to be able to tell my students a ballpark figure of how much effort goes into producing these luxury goods--from making the metal base, to adding wire lines, to filling it with enamel, to firing, to final polishing. Our vases are polished to a high gloss, and they have an intricate geometric pattern in the background. There is no area in the background with a gap of more than 2 mm. The foreground consists of well-rendered flowers and foliage. Any thoughts about such objects would be most appreciated.

Help requested identifying a novel I read in the early 1990s involving Triads and illegal Chinese immigration.

Help requested identifying a novel I read in the early 1990s involving Triads and illegal Chinese immigration. There was an American who was tasked with transporting a Chinese illegal alien across parts of the western US in an automobile (car or pickup truck). I think his eventual destination was WA or OR, and parts of the story were in CA, in a sweatshop (I think). The Triads were involved. Any candidate titles or assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you Thank you Thank you.

iPad Apps for Chinese or Vietnamese Adults

What apps would a 50-year old Chinese or Vietnamese person have on their iPad? I'm thinking of getting my parents iPads, since I've really enjoyed mine, think that it'd be simple enough for them to use, and easy enough to do technical support for. They aren't that technically savvy and don't speak English well so I'd like to get them started first on some easy to use apps where they could get content such as foreign news, music, and television shows.
