Nelson & Edith Dawson Jewellery



The exquisite enamel work of husband-and-wife jewellers Nelson & Edith Dawson is amongst some of the finest and most coveted of the Arts & Crafts jewellers. Nelson was a pupil of enamellist Alexander Fisher from 1891, and in turn taught his wife Edith to enamel. Edith was a skilled watercolourist and this talent very much extended to her enamel work. Their pieces are typically set in silver, with the main event being deep coloured enamel decoration executed by Edith featuring natural scenes of flowers and birds.
