Halcyon Days Limited Edition Prince of Wales on the Embankment Enamel Box
This charming Limited Edition enamel box from Halcyon Days depicts a royal scene from one of London’s snowiest winters.
The illustration is based on a work from 1881 by William Smalls. The Prince of Wales is driving a sleigh along the Embankment, with Waterloo Bridge in the background. In January 1881, London experienced blizzards, with 40 inches of snow recorded. The box has a smart dark base that contrasts with the silver-coloured rim.
Crafted in Bilston, once the centre of the UK’s enamelling industry, the box is made using the traditional technique of enamel on copper.
