This beautiful little enamel over copper box in the shape of an egg was produced in the 1980s to 1990s by Halcyon Days Enamels in England. The craft of enameling over copper to produce small boxes used for snuff or ladies beauty marks (known as patches) was popular in the 1700's but passed out of favor by the early 1800's. Susan Benjamin, owner of Halcyon Days, an antique store in London, spearheaded the revival of the craft and produced the first Bilston & Battersea Enamels designed by Halcyon Days in 1970. In 1980, the name was changed to Halcyon Days Enamels. The beautiful little boxes have become extremely collectible and continue to be produced.
This beautiful mini egg shaped box has a twist on lid, with a bright gold tone bezel. The oval Halcyon Days mark is on the interior. The egg is a beautiful pale blue with a pink floral pattern all over with what looks like pink dogwood or possibly cherry blossoms. It comes with a clear plastic stand to display the egg in a reclining position.
The enamel egg box is in excellent condition. The egg measures almost 1.75" long and about 1" in diameter at the bezel. Unfortunately the original box and pamphlet are not available.
