Halcyon Days Limited Edition VE Day Enamel Box
This collector’s limited edition box from Halcyon days marks the 60th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day, 8 May 1945.
This collector’s edition box from Halcyon days marks the 60th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day, 8 May 1945. The famous VE Day celebrations followed the surrender of the German Forces to the Allies, and commemorative events are still held every year. The round enamel box features the RAF’s victory flypast over St Paul’s Cathedral, a London landmark that came to represent the country’s undefeatable spirit. Around the base, we see cheering crowds and a recreated newspaper report. The round box is crafted in Bilston from enamel-coated copper. This traditional technique creates the perfect surface for paint, capturing the bright colours of the artwork.
Limited edition of 250
Halcyon Days was established in London’s Mayfair in 1950. The company revived the traditional art of enamelling on copper, a technique that creates beautiful, vibrant colours. While Halcyon Days makes a variety of jewellery and luxury giftware, it’s nest-known for its exquisite enamel boxes.
As well as being loved by collectors all over the world, Halcyon Days is one of only 14 companies to hold all three Royal Warrants, for Objets D’Art. At Bonds, we have a selection of their appealing hand-painted boxes and bonbonnieres.
