This beautiful Christmas enamel box called "The Carol Singers" was made by the English company called Halcyon Days in 1982, and has the oval Halcyon Days Enamels mark on the underside. The box depicts a snow covered town around the base and a group of carolers on the lid. The drawings were by Moria Hoddell.
Halcyon Days set out to revive the eighteenth century English craft of enameling over copper to produce lovely little boxes which were originally used for beauty patches, snuff, or candies.
The enamel box is in excellent condition. The hinged lid opens easily and closes securely. The gold tone bezel is still bright and shiny. The interior of the lid has a black and white drawing of a top hat and sheet music labeled carols. The interior of the base has a black and white drawing of a lantern. The box measures about 1.75" in diameter and stands about 1" tall. This lovely enamel box comes in its red presentation box with pamphlet. The red box has small areas of wear on the bottom and the back side.
