This Bilston and Battersea enamel box was born in the year of America’s bicentennial: A 1976 Christmas box is a rare find these days, and so worth the wait! The scene is set in the cobblestone streets of Victorian England. The cast of characters are family members, pressed close to the shining windows to see the Christmas wonders, and one dainty cat prancing on the snow covered roof.
The design inside the box is a line drawing of presents – probably some of the wonders seen through the window – all wrapped up and finished with bows. The enamel and findings are in excellent condition, inside and out. This 1976 Christmas box measures 1.75 inches in diameter. The original Bilston and Battersea velvet lined display box and certificate of authenticity are included, also in lovely condition.
