Historic Royal Palaces is the independent charity that looks after the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, the Banqueting House, Kensington Palace, Kew Palace and Hillsborough Castle. The charity's aim is to help explore the story of how monarchs and people alike have shaped society in some of the greatest palaces ever built.
Collaborating with Historic Royal Palaces, Halcyon Days has created this hand-painted enamel box featuring an original painting of Kensington Palace. A royal residence of great historical importance, Kensington Palace was where Queen Victoria was born and spent most of her childhood.
Today, the palace hosts the offices and private apartments of several members of the royal family, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
An exquisite keepsake, this is a gift to be treasured and adored for years to come.
Measures: L: 2.25" W: 1.5" H: 1.25"
About Halcyon Days Enamel Boxes:
Each enamel box has been lovingly handcrafted by a team of highly skilled artisans. The process, which has been handed down through generations, requires painstaking accuracy, patience and dedication.
It begins as a simple copper mould before being cleaned and coated with a thin layer of enamel. It then enters a kiln at 800C for 7-8 minutes. This process is repeated no less than five times to ensure that the finish is hard, glossy and flawless in preparation for the painting and decoration.
Our artists paint the design by hand, using special enamel paints which can take days depending on the complexity of each design. The enamel is then fired a final time before it is checked, assembled and beautifully packaged.
