9780316909396: English Enamel Boxes: From the Eighteenth to the Twentieth Centuries

Small and beautifully crafted, the small enamel box, or "Battersea" as it was widely known, is highly prized by antique collectors world-wide. Susan Benjamin traces its history from its origins in the 1740s through to modern-day incarnations. The enigmatic "Battersea" rarely carries any identifying marks, creating confusion for the would-be collector. Benjamin shows how pieces can be dated and sourced, revealing the characteristic traits of individual factories. With an enthusiastic yet scholarly text, accompanied by colour illustrations, the book is aimed at both the collector and the amateur enthusiast.
