#MADEINUKDAY

At Halcyon Days we're celebrating Made in UK Day 2021 on Tuesday 9 March. For 70 years we've been committed to preserving ancient artisan skills and creating jobs locally. 

Buying British-made products is to join a journey along a path that's paved with excellence. A journey that's seen generations of craftsmen and women learn almost unchanging, meticulously mastered techniques from their predecessors. Made to last a lifetime, all the pieces we create in our Stoke-on Trent factory evoke a rich past as well as, with your help, a bright future.

The bottom of all our ceramics and enamel boxes proudly display a 'Made in England' stamp. Next time you're putting away a precious trinket or brewing a hot cup of tea, turn your product over and take a moment to think about all the talent, history and heritage that have brought it into existence.

UK manufacturing is worth £192 billion to the UK economy and employs 2.7 million people. More than 65 million people live in the UK. If everyone bought just one item made in the UK worth £40 on #MADEINUKDAY it would be worth £2.6 billion.

 

THE ARTISAN CRAFT OF ENAMELLING
In a digital age where mass produced products are taking over, Halcyon Days has become the guardian of the artisan craft of enamelling. We are a business of tradition – all our enamels are made by hand in our own factory in Wolverhampton, at the heart of where the industry originated in the 18th Century.

EXCEPTIONAL ENGLISH FINE BONE CHINA
Halcyon Days is one of the world's leading producers of English fine bone china. A truly British craft, few actually know the the story behind this diverse and durable material.
Fine bone china is a soft-paste porcelain containing a percentage of animal bone. To qualify as fine bone china, the clay must contain a minimum of 30% bone ash. The addition of this bone ash gives the material a translucent quality when held up to the light, which you can test with all Halcyon Days fine bone china pieces.
