English Enamels

Here is a scene from our English cabinet: Eighteenth century English porcelain and enamels.

To the far left and right are Birmingham enamel boxes, painted with couples in landscapes in the French manner, and dating to the 1760's.
Between them is a selection of South Staffordshire enamels, daring to the 1780-1800 period, and printed with hand coloring.
Behind them is a pair of rare Derby birds, circa 1770, and a Derby cherub with a basket of flowers , circa 1780.
