If you hold the bowl to daylight, does the light shine through like a stained glass window?
If so, that is called plique-a-jour cloisonne. This plique a jour (a technique meaning pieces of daylight) cloisonne bowl is Chinese, dating
to circa 1900 and has a value of $200 to $300.
There is not a technique called Champlaise when referring to enamel, glass and metal work.

If there is no light showing through then is is
Chinese cloisonne' with glass over metal instead of enamel over metal,
which was also one of the cloisonne techniques. This bowl
has a current value of $200 to $300 retail and would date from 1900 to 1920.

Hi, My name is***** have been dealing in and appraising Antiques for over 40 years, and I can help you with this. This is Chinese export circa 1920 this is Cloisonné. It is enamel over copper with wires soldered to define the design. Then this is fired in a kiln and the enamel melts to a high gloss. The bottom is just plain blue enamel, a lot of times the bottom is stamped in ink with a Qing Dynasty mark of "China".
Similar pieces in quality, age, and design are selling for $200-300 at auction.

You are correct this is done with 2 different types of enamel. One is powered enamel applied and fired, which is used on most Chinese cloisonné. The other is Vitreous enamel, also called porcelain enamel, is a material made by fusing powdered glass to a substrate by firing, usually between 750 and 850 °C (1,380 and 1,560 °F). The powder melts, flows, and then hardens to a smooth, durable glass like fInish.
There is no term that I know of other than cloisonné to describe the overall process.
