Constructed in the 13th century, Notre-Dame’s magnificent stained glass Rose Window allows divine light to pour into the cathedral from above in the form of soft, jewel-like tones. In the centre oculus of the north Rose Window is the image of Mary enthroned holding the Christ Child. Surrounding them are images of kings and prophets of the Old Testament.

On 15 April, 2019 a disastrous fire ravaged the cathedral. Miraculously, the Rose Window remains intact, evoking a beautiful story of resilience and triumph.

Once opened, it softly plays 'Ave Maria' in commemoration of members of the public singing the hymn, supporting one another, whilst the cathedral stood in flames.

10% of the retail value of this Musical Box will be donated to La Fondation de Patrimoine.

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.
