This beautiful Christmas enamel box was made by the English company called Halcyon Days in 1988, and has the oval Halcyon Days Enamels mark on the underside. A Christmas tree surrounded by red ribbons and holly are depicted on the lid. Christmas sayings separated by ribbons and holly encircle the sides of the box. The sayings include "Seasons Greetings," "Peace on Earth," "Goodwill to all men." and "Joy and happiness."
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 colorful drawing of a Christmas tree surrounded by a red ribbon. The box measures about 1.75" in diameter and stands about 1" tall. There is no presentation box or pamphlets with this one.
Great collectibles, friendly service, careful packing and quick shipping. Purrfect!!
