For other remarks on Kirkwood see https://www.ganoksin.com/article/james-cromar-watt/

'Elizabeth Kirkwood was a prolific enameler who worked in a painterly style, preferring a narrative, frequently religious idiom. One panel shows St. Michael casting out Satan. Kirkwood was the daughter of Henry Bruce Kirkwood, a partner in R & H B Kirkwood, goldsmiths, jewelers, of Edinburgh. She followed her father into the family business and became a working jeweler and silversmith. She exhibited prolifically with the Scottish Society of Women Artists and the Glasgow Society of Lady Artists. A family friend, recalls ‘Betty’ as “a striking woman beautifully dressed in jewel colors”; perhaps her taste in clothes influenced her decision to work with enamels.'
Good.
