A characteristic feature of Böhm's fine enamel works is the meticulous, detailed painting

of the reverse sides of objects in delicate colours. Such exquisite works of art were produced in Vienna from 1870/71 onwards and attracted considerable attention when presented at the world exhibitions there in 1872 and 1878.
