Halcyon Days Enamel Eos by Landseer Enamel Box, Large
Eos was an original work of art by Sir Edwin Henry Landseer (1802 – 1873) commissioned by Queen Victoria as a surprise Christmas gift for her husband Prince Albert. Eos had come with Prince Albert from Germany in 1840 when he married Queen Victoria.
His affection for his canine companion prompted the subsequent commission which depicts Eos guarding some of her master's personal possessions.
The Eos enameled box has been hand-crafted in England and is a true collector's item. A thoughtful gift for any art aficionado.
This box is only available made to order and will; therefore, be dispatched six-eight weeks after the date of purchase.
