Enamelware is the term used for items that have a porcelain enamel finish. Enamel is the result of fusing powdered glass to a substrate by firing. The powder melts and flows and hardens to a smooth, durable vitreous coating on metal, glass or ceramic. It is not known exactly where or when enamel first originated but the process is thousands of years old and was used by the Egyptians. Production of enamelware grew considerably in the 19th century and was commonly used for kitchenware due to its strength, heat conductive abilities, and non-stick surface. In the 1920s and 1930s, enamelware was produced in beautiful shades of blue, green, yellow, and cream as well as bright red and white.
In overall good condition. Antique and vintage items by their very nature show normal wear to finish and miscellaneous scratches, nicks, and dings due to age and use. As we define 'good condition' relative to the stated age of the piece, we would expect to see 'character marks' consistent with that age and could include nicks or dings to a wooden, metal, enamel, or chalkware object, wear to a painted surface, speckling on a mirror, crazing, wear to gilding, or manufacturing glaze skips in ceramic finish, wear to a label, and some original decorative trim may be missing. If ceramic/porcelain restoration has been done, it is of museum-quality so that it is hardly discernible and would be specifically mentioned in the listing. 'Good condition' could include very small fleabite chips or very small hairline cracks in any glass, ceramic, or marble item, but these would be specifically mentioned in the listing.
Shows wear to the finish due to age and use. There are holes in the bottom from rust so the piece cannot hold water.

The Fine Print
Because EuroLux Antiques maintains its own website and lists on other online sites, while also operating a physical store location in Newberry, South Carolina, we reserve the right to end any listing early if it has not been purchased outright or no bids have been placed upon the item. On occasion, a piece listed on a website may no longer be available. We do our best to maintain the accuracy of our inventory records but we often have customers interested in the same item at the same time. In those cases, we defer to the customer who placed the earlier order. We apologize in advance by any inconvenience this may cause. Because of this, we encourage all of our buyers to purchase the item as quickly as possible so that your treasured find doesn't sell elsewhere to someone else. Happy browsing and thanks! Aimee & Greg Talbot at EuroLux Antiques.
