Elizabeth Copeland Enamel Poppies Silver Jewelry Box


This delicately-scaled silver box, by master enamelist and metalsmith Elizabeth Copeland, is an Arts & Crafts collectible treasure. Consisting of refined Celtic-esque motifs in raised metalwork framing vignettes of soft, intricately-layered enamel creating a rich bouquet of poppy flowers and unfurling leaves on a royal navy background, this miniature jewelry box shows Copeland's work at its best, the richly-colored poppies and sensitive, hand-wrought artistry attesting to her deep affinity with the enamelists of the Renaissance.
