Bob Corson is a retired aerospace engineer, and a collector of plique-à-jour enameled objects dating mostly between 1890 and 1910. His collection began with souvenir spoons of the era and has grown to include more elaborate plique objects. His study of enameling arts has led to identifying obscure makers’ marks and continuing wonder at fine art invested in souvenirs. He lives north of Seattle, and is an avid practitioner of show and tell.
