STRENGTHENING BONDS BEAUTIFULLY FOR OVER 70 YEARS
Established in 1950, Halcyon Days began as a small emporium of antique gifts in Avery Row, Mayfair, London. Although the art of enamelling on copper had flourished throughout the second half of the 18th century, it had almost completely ceased by the 1830s, and by 1950 the process was almost solely reserved for utility items such as saucepans.
Halcyon Days set about reviving this artisan craft and thus the renowned Halcyon Days enamel box was born. By 1959 the company had outgrown the little Avery Row store and moved to Brook Street, Mayfair, where it remained for some fifty years. Due to the installation of Crossrail (a new railway service running through the centre of London ), we were forced to leave Brook Street. Our head office is now located in London's Knightsbridge while the vast majority of our products continue to be crafted in our two factories in the West Midlands.
Tradition is at the heart of everything that Halcyon Days does. As the guardian of enamelling, our team of highly skilled craftsmen and master artists employ refined techniques that have been handed down for generations.
This belief in promoting, cherishing, developing and maintaining British craftsmanship and manufacturing can also be found in our wider product ranges. Whilst continuing to create signature enamel pieces, Halcyon Days is now also known for its English fine bone china and fashion accessories, establishing itself as the destination for luxury gifts.
THE ARTISAN CRAFT OF ENAMELLING
In a digital age where mass produced products prevail, Halcyon Days has become the guardian of this 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.
