Ref  GL3  Bilston Enamel Choker of Queen Anne

A rare surviving Bilston enamel choker necklace, circa 1765. During the 18th century  the two main areas of enamel manufacture in England were Bilston in the West Midlands and Battersea in London.  It is believed that enamelling at Bilston began when a number of French craftsmen fled France in the 1750's due to religious persecution. This Bilston necklace is comprised of a series of enamel panels with co-joined heart motifs and a central panel depicting Queen Anne, wearing Queen Anne jewels. The panels are threaded onto black ribbon. The enamel panels are 10 and 3/4 inches long and 2/3 of an inch wide. The ribbon can be adjusted to any neck length. Quite amazing that is has survived in such remarkably fine condiiton.
