Halcyon Days Enamels 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. In the 1970's, the company used the Bilston and Battersea Enamels oval mark. In 1980 the mark was changed to Halcyon Days Enamels.
This beautiful Christmas enamel box was made in 1978, and has the oval Bilston and Battersea mark on the underside. The box depicts a snow covered town in what appears to be the Victorian era with people bearing gifts being welcomed into a home. The sides of the box are adorned with holly boughs and Christmas 1978.
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 horse drawn carriage. The interior of the base has a black and white drawing of a Christmas tree. The box measures about 1.75" in diameter and stands about 1" tall. This lovely enamel box comes in its turquoise presentation box with The Bilston & Battersea Enamels pamphlet. It is also in excellent condition.
