Bespoke Gifts for the Holidays
HALCYON DAYS ENAMEL BOXES
Tradition is at the heart of everything that Halcyon Days does. Established in 1950, the company began as a small emporium of antique gifts in Avery Row, Mayfair, London. Although the art of enamelling on copper had flourished throughout the second half of the 18th century, it had almost completely ceased by the 1830s, and by 1950 the process was almost solely reserved for utility items such as saucepans.
Halcyon Days set about reviving this artisan craft and, thus, the renowned Halcyon Days Enamel Box was born. A perfect gift for the Holidays, Halcyon’s new personalization service allows you to order one of their custom boxes and have it inscribed with someone’s initials or a special date (or even a secret message hidden inside the lid). Boxes come in a number of color, shape, mounting options and inscription fonts.
