Few antiques create the same warm emotional response as the enamel box, -an object of beauty and eloquence. Enamelling is one of the oldest of the decorative arts and one of the most permanent. These boxes have been known throughout the the years by the magic name Battersea. Yet the Battersea factory closed in 1756, and for every box made in Battersea, thousands were made elsewhere. From the 15th century onwards magnificent painted enamel boxes were made at various times by English, French, German, Austrian, Swiss, Italian and Dutch artist-enamelers. Almost always there is hairline cracks and chips to the enamel. This is a sign of age, and only add character to the box.
