European Decorative Arts Company's collection of Viennese enamels includes works by Hermann Ratzersdorfer and Hermann Böhm, in popular Renaissance Revival forms and decoration, in painted enamels with silver-gilt mounts
Along with Limoges in France, Vienna became a center for the production of painted enamels in the second half of the 19th century. Major workshops by well-known silversmiths, such as Bohm and Ratzersdorfer, created elaborate confections in the "Ringstrasse" taste, catering primarily to a burgeoning affluent clientèle and made primarily for export.
In-person viewing of our extensive collection can be arranged at our by-appointment-only showrooms.
