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 1987, and has the oval Halcyon Days Enamels mark on the underside. The box depicts a scene of medieval musicians, dancers and jesters presumably celebrating Christmas. A refrain from "Deck the Halls" is written on the front side, and Christmas 1987 on the lid.
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 jester dancing next to the line from Deck the Halls: "Follow me in merry measure while I tell of Yuletide pleasure." The box measures about 1.75" in diameter and stands about 1" tall. No paperwork or presentation box is available on this one.
