Here at AC Silver we are able to offer our customers a range of silverware featuring enamel decoration.
Enamel decoration is an ancient art, with the ancient Romans and Egyptians
Using powdered and crushed glass to decorate metal objects. Enamel is created by applying extreme heat to this powdered glass, which then melts and adheres to the silverware.
Enamel decoration became especially popular in the Victorian period, where artists were able to â€˜paintâ€™ fine details in enamel, which would then be affixed to the metal. Most of our pieces feature the famous Guilloché style enamel decoration- which is incredibly popular- and is a classic, timeless style of decoration.
Enamel is commonly affixed to dressing table sets, mirrors, and frames for photographs. This enamel decoration was especially prevalent in the art nouveau and art deco eras.
