Selection of decorative enamel boxes. Clockwise from top left to bottom left: 'A London Gift' with an image of Westminster Bridge on the lid; with an image of St Paul's Cathedral and the words 'A Trifle from London'; 'A London Gift' with an image of Somerset House on the lid; ' A Trifle from London' with an image of The Queen's Palace and 'A Present from London' with an image of the Monument on lid. 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.
