The 2020 edition of the Annual Year Box is inspired by designs found
within the Halcyon Days archive. A soft, pastel green serves as the
background for the intricate gold detailing combined with clusters of
flowers. The colour palette of the box evokes details of the ceilings
created by famed 18th century English architect, Robert Adam.
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.
Halcyon Days 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.
