From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Thomas Battam (1810-1864) was a British painter of miniatures. He was born in London. He produced copies in enamels, several of which were exhibited at the Royal Academy (1833 - 1840). Battam was later employed as a painter at the Copeland porcelain factory, and was the founder, and president, of the Crystal Palace Art Union. He claimed to be the inventor of Parian Ware, an inexpensive substitute for marble. He died at Notting Hill, London, aged about fifty-four (Oct 28, 1864).
