A large Boston School copper and enamel arts and crafts box with striking peacock enamel set in the lid. The enamel uses the cloisonne technique. The peacock is suggestive of the work of Frank Marshall and the style of the enamel is in the manner of Elizabeth Copeland. The box dates to c.1910.
The box is in very good antique condition with minor cracking to small areas of the enamel visible under magnification only. The copper box itself has a good patina and is also in excellent condition, with minor bruises to the rim. The images are a faithful reproduction of the colours of the enamel and copper under lighting without photoshopping. This is a very striking enamel.
