Crafting the Nation’s Honours
Monday 15 December 2014
The CBEs, MBEs and OBEs being presented in the spring to those who will be named in the New Year’s Honours List are being crafted now in Toye & Co.’s Bedworth and Birmingham factories. The Honours will be completed and delivered in early April.
Speaking of the company’s pride in crafting these highly valued items, Frederick Toye of Toye & Co. said: “Our craftsmen and women know how much the recipients of these medals prize the honour and so take great care in their manufacture. We make sure the medals are beautiful and can be treasured forever by the recipient.”
Each Honour comprises both a medal and a ribbon woven to a specified colour scheme. Toye & Co.’s master weaver is producing the ribbons now at its Bedworth textile factory, while the medals are being hand crafted and enamelled in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.
