The souvenirs commemorating Pride and Prejudice 200 are beginning to make themselves known to us, and I won’t be featuring all of them here as some are, in my opinion, hideous. One of the more elegant examples is this little enamel box produced in a very limited edition of 50 by Halcyon Days, the firm that was founded by the redoubtable Susan Benjamin in the 1950s. Mrs Benjamin first made her name by selling antique enamel boxes from her Brook Street, Mayfair, shop and then, as demand grew, she revived the fashion for new Bilston and Battersea enamel boxes which were made in the 18th century style.
The commemorative issue shows Elizabeth Bennet and Darcy coming to an understanding ;) It is, however, rather pricey at £195. If you would like more information about the box, then click here to be taken to the Halcyon Days site.
