A Jewellery Quarter firm is enjoying a very special New Year honour - showcasing its wares within the cloisters of St Paul’s Cathedral.
To tie in with the announcement of the Honours List, St Paul’s has launched ‘The OBE Collection,’ a range of gifts inspired by the OBE Chapel in the Cathedral.
And the array of gifts has been created in tandem with 320-year-old Birmingham firm Toye, Kenning and Spencer, sole suppliers of buttonhole badges designed to be worn by recipients of honours.
The collection includes a tie, scarf, cufflinks, goblets and a bracelet, with a percentage of the sales going towards upkeep of the OBE Chapel.
Toye Kenning & Spencer’s sales and marketing director Fiona Toye said: “The Toye Group has a long association with the OBE as suppliers of the badges and ribbons presented at investitures and sole suppliers of the buttonhole badges.
“So we are particularly proud to be associated with St Paul’s Cathedral in this exciting project.”
The gift range will be on sale in St Paul’s Cathedral and in Toye Kenning & Spencer’s Great Queen Street showroom from mid-January.
The company employs around 300 people at its bases in Birmingham, Bedworth and London.
