Halcyon Days Limited Edition Queen Elizabeth 1 Enamel Box
This elegant oval box from Halcyon Days features a portrait
of Elizabeth 1.
The original painting hangs in Jesus College Oxford. It depicts the Queen in full iconic splendour, with a bejewelled dress, oversized ruff and with a crown set in her rich, red curls. Founded in 1571, Jesus is the only Elizabethan college in Oxford, and its full title is “Jesus College in the University of Oxford of Queen Elizabeth's Foundation”.
Crafted in Bilston, once the heart of Britain’s enamelling industry, the box is made using the traditional technique of enamel on copper.
