"A new departure is the preparation of small round plaques - 'roundels' , varying from about three inches in diameter to the size of a small button. These are intended to be introduced as gems or points of colour in decorative woodwork and metal work." - Birmingham Daily Post, January 1903

These are five of the Moss Green Glaze cabochons/enamels/roundels.

The name "Ruskin" is synonymous with the Arts & Crafts Movement. John Ruskin saw the mediaeval workman as being the ideal craftsman. Sheila Sindelar writes: "In his view, this model was a means to bring about nothing less than the emancipation of the working classes of his time, and he began using it to address social and political problems in 1857. Part and parcel of this philosophy was a belief that, by surrounding themselves with honest and simple objects and works of art, peoples' lives would somehow be enriched."
