Each new enamel box, chelsea bonbonnières, clock, paperweight, cufflink and stud is designed or approved by Staffordshire Enamels' in-house head designer, using traditional English design resources for inspiration. The design is then discussed with the head artist and the production director. A free hand-painted sample is produced by one of our gifted senior artists. This is shown to a select few of our long-standing customers for comment. The design is then modified in the light of market feedback and approved for production to become a Staffordshire Enamels box or one of our other 100% hand-made products.
The first production unit is carefully monitored at every stage and is given a final scrutiny to ensure it lives up to our high quality standards. If it does, the artist who painted it entirely by hand adds his or her 'Touchmark' (initials) and these are fired in to ensure that the history of every piece we produce is capable of being traced.
