When one thinks of enamel today, people usually come up with enamel advertising signs, which are popular by collectors and admirers of vintage design. However, a century ago, every day life would have been unimaginable without the use of enamel, since kitchenware, stoves, ovens, thermometers and other objects were all given a layer of enamel.
