    The Gilbert Collection at the V&A comprises exquisite gold and silver items, mosaics, gold boxes and enamel portrait miniatures. The 100 or so miniatures provide a representative overview of the art, which flourished between the 17th and 19th centuries. The output of nearly all the leading artists of the genre is represented in this illustrated catalogue, with information about patrons and sitters and scholarly chapters on the history and techniques of enamel miniature painting in Britain and Europe.
