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.
About Personalized Enamel Boxes:
This enamel box can be personalized to make the perfect gift for a special occasion. That extra special touch creates a truly beautiful present that is entirely unique to the recipient. Over the years, our customers have chosen to personalize their Halcyon Days enamel boxes with initials, a meaningful date, the co-ordinates of a special place, a heartfelt message, or a special number.
Your personalized message is inscribed on the inside base of your Halcyon Days box and is fired into the enamel in either Chancery or Times New Roman font. Since each personalized box is handcrafted just for you in England, please allow 4 weeks for shipment.
