An 18th century Battersea enamel casket of unusually large dimensions. The casket has wonderful landscape scenes painted to the four bow sides and the dome lid, each panel is held within a gilt metal frame. The lid hinges open to an interior that has been lined with red velvet that is not original. To the underside of the base is part of an old label that is difficult to read, From Coll. M.H.H. Princess . . . . . . . ouki". The box does have some very minor cracks to the edge. (Circa 1760) Height 12.6cm (5 inches) Width 22.7cm (8.9 inches) Depth 15.2cm (6 inches) 18th Century Battersea Enamel Casket
