Selection of souvenir enamel boxes. The images on the lid depict, from top left to bottom right: Somerset House; Queen's Palace; Westminster Bridge; The Monument; St. Paul's Cathedral; St. Paul's Cathedral. An enamelling workshop operated at Battersea between 1753 and 1756. Enamelling was a speciality of the West Midlands, and it is possible that these boxes, despite their obvious connections with London, were made there and shipped to London for sale.
