Halcyon Days Bilston Battersea Round 1974 Christmas Box, Us Version:
Halcyon Days Bilston Battersea Round 1974 Christmas Box, US version. It is 1 5/8 inch (4.25 cm) in diameter. Overall excellent condition with no chips or cracks. The image on the lid depicts a winter scene in the countryside, with a horse-drawn sleigh, with a village chapel in the background. The interior of the lid has "Christmas 1974" written across the top, and shows a winter countryside scene at night, with a full moon and stars, country house, chapel and farm animals. For two of the early years (1973 and 1974) in the series of round Christmas boxes, a separate version was made for the United Kingdom and the United States. This is an excellent example of the US version, which is characterized by having a yellow base (the UK version has a turquoise base). The primary difference in the images on the enamel itself between the US and UK versions is that for the UK version, "Christmas 1974" is written across the exterior of the lid over the winter scene. The US version is much less frequently seen than the UK version. For the early years (1973-1975) of the round enamel series, there was no dated Certificate of Authenticity, but instead a Certificate of Origin that detailed the history of enameling was provided with the enamel and its presentation case.
