Staffordshire Enameled boxes are unquestionable works of art. Each piece is painstakingly hand painted by expert craftsmen in traditional methods that have changed very little since production began in the eighteenth century. Bonbonnieres were originally produce to have a little sweet or gift inside. Today these Enamel Bonbonniere boxes with their little Character Figures on the lid are given as Gifts for all occasions with many Collectors Worldwide too.

As all the Staffordshire Enamel boxes are hand decorated, there inevitably will be small variance in colour and design. Far from detracting this is a feature of the unique manufacture of this product.

Many customers ask us to inscribe the inside lid or base with a very special message.

We are pleased to do this for an extra charge, please contact us for more information. instore@havens.co.uk

The Manufacturing Process for a Staffordshire Enamel Box:

  • Each Enamel Box is created by flattening, spinning and forming Copper sheets
  • The Copper is acid treated and roughened to accept the Enamel
  • The Enamel is created with a mixture of vitreous glass milled to a powder. Water and coloured oxides are then added to create an emulsion.
  • White or coloured layers of Enamel are applied to the Copper with firing of each layer at 800 degrees centigrade
  • Artwork is Created by Distinguished artists
  • Lithograph In black ink printed and applied to the the enameled surface of the box and fired to fix the print
  • Colours are hand mixed using fine pigments and oils
  • The Artist hand paints the Box using the black lithograph as a guide
  • Finally the Enamel Box is fired again to fix the colours and the final glaze
