A Modern Day Renaissance of a Truly British Brand
Halcyon Days was founded in 1950 as an emporium of antique gifts in Mayfair, London. Today the company has evolved into a strong lifestyle brand, and as we continue to create our signature enamel pieces we are adding new categories to create full collections of luxury goods and fashion accessories.
The craft of enameling on copper has been carried out in England since the 1740s. We still produce our hand-crafted signature enamel boxes in our own workshops located in the heart of England. Made by a team of highly skilled artists - using traditional English enamelling techniques handed down through generations - they continue to demonstrate the very best of British craftsmanship. Our craftsmen and artists take great pride in delivering luxury products of the highest standard.
Halcyon Days creates a variety of hand-decorated enamel bangles. In our pursuit to continue the enamelling craft, we have translated the same process used for our signature hand-painted enamel boxes to create wearable fashion accessories.
Our bangles are designed by our own artists and are made using the same traditional process as our enamel boxes. This ensures both design and quality is never compromised.
We are proud to be one of only fourteen companies to hold all three Royal Warrants. This important relationship sets the high standard of UK craftsmanship and design, which we are dedicated to maintain.
The United Kingdom, the United States of America and Japan are three of the strongest markets for Halcyon Days. Our key global accounts are Harrods and Harrods International, Fortnum & Mason, Scully & Scully in New York, Gumps in San Francisco and Isetan-Mitsukoshi in Tokyo.
We are also represented in Canada, Italy, Switzerland, Russia, Singapore, Bermuda and the Caribbean, and we look forward to continued growth and development in other territories across the globe.
The history of commissioning enamels from Halcyon Days dates from 1970 when The Late Queen Mother commissioned a box depicting her London home, Clarence House.
In 1976, Cartier in New York commissioned Halcyon Days to create an enamel box for President Ford to give to The Queen on her official visit to the USA. Coincidentally, she too gifted a Halcyon Days enamel box to the President.
Halcyon Days offers an exceptional service for customers wishing to create their own exclusive piece, whether a hand-painted enamel box or a spectacular freehand-painted porcelain bowl with a unique design. Combining superb craftsmanship and service, Halcyon Days continues to produce bespoke pieces for private clients, and limited editions to commemorate momentous events and partnerships.
