This Halcyon Days Enameled Box by Bilston & Battersea of Bilston, England is in excellent, like new condition. The floral top is a Jamaican Flower painting by Marianne North (1830-1890). This beautiful piece has a cobalt blue bottom with the floral lid. The bottom of the box reads with the Bilston & Battersea oval hallmark and Royal Botanical Gardens KEW. This piece comes with the original felt lined presentation box and brochure. The enameled box is 1 5/8" in diameter and 1" tall. These are highly prized and collectible!
I have always had an affinity for small pill type boxes. My love of small pill type boxes is well known. Whether the medium is porcelain, mixed metal, sterling silver, wood etc., I have a great collection of these as one can see in my store here at Ruby Lane. Limoges porcelain boxes especially, as you can tell by the great numbers I have to offer. Pill boxes such as Bilston & Battersea and Limoges are highly collectible and make great gifts!! Silver by Patrick has the largest selection of pill boxes on Ruby Lane!!
