All the fittings are Brass. 

The collars will be made to order specially for you and can take up to 8 weeks to create, though with two workshops up and running now H&L are hoping to cut delivery  times down.

Fly the Flag with Holly&Lil Exclusive

 

 

 Holly&Lil were thrilled when they discovered The Pet Jeweller created by Cathy Hawkes. A silversmith by trade she found it difficult to find anything individual for her own dogs and saw a gap in the market for dog jewellery. The UK tag is exlusive to Holly&Lil

 The tags are handmade and hand finished. For this reason, no tag will ever be the same, (soooooo Holly&Lil).  The price includes the tag and the engraving

 The tags have been tried and tested by Cathy’s own dogs, As with all metal it will dull after a while due to the little nicks and scratches of wear and tear. You can buff the tag with some very fine wet and dry sandpaper or ask The Pet Jeweller to re-polish the tag to it’s original shine.

 

The information you wish to be marked on the back is hand stamped. Different to engraving, it gives a deeper impression and will last longer. UK law requires that the very minimum information on the tag should be your address and postcode. The Pet Jeweller advises having house number and postcode.

The Holly&Lil exclusive tag comes in two sizes and is made from brass and silver.

UK flag retails Small £31 and Large £36  + postage.

Available in store or online in “The Holly&Lil Bazaar”

HEREND CELEBRATES HUNGARY’S PRESIDENCY OF THE EU WITH GIANT VASE

The one metre tall vase weighs almost 25 kilograms — quite a technical feat to produce. It is decorated with the best-known and loved Herend pattern,  Victoria, which was named in honour of the former British Monarch Queen Victoria. Excerpts from the national anthems of EU member states are inscribed in gold lettering among the pale green flowers and butterflies of the décor.

During the Presidency, the vase will be on display at the Grassalkovich Palace in Gödöllő, which will host the majority of the informal Council meetings in Hungary.

Best Dressed Dogs Wear Brocade for the Festive Season

Holly & Lil decided to relaunch their beautiful Brocade collection in time for the festive season for  three reasons but mostly because they love it and so do their customers.

The Brocade collars are good for everyday use and are happy to take regular wetting,  mud and fox poo rolling from active dogs.  The backing is supple calf leather, rolled and piped around the edges of the cowhide to create a finish we’ve created to be kind to neck fur. Customers report that they are thrilled that although these collars are so durable, they don’t ‘carve’ collar lines and can help overcome matting in long or silky coats.

However,  if your dog is a constant  neck ‘scratcher’, you will need to make sure that his or her claws are not tearing the weave of the Brocade.

All colourways come as both “Slims” and “Wides”.
Greyhound/lurcher collars are now available; use the
Bespoke Option below to select.
NB: Sizes ½ and 1 ‘miniwides’ lightweight collars are specially designed for mini breeds such as Chihuahuas.  Small terriers are better suited by our ‘Slim 5/8” full buckle’ design.

Prices from £48.00

Kadogs Tags for your little Gems (Cats & Dogs) now from Holly &Lil

Holly & Lil have long been admired for their gorgeous collars and leads and now they have  added something really special to go with them – a unique dog tag from Kadogs. For our little gems Kadogs have decided to use only the finest gemstones – genuine diamonds and topaz in a wide range of colours.

The tags are made of stainless steel and are turned from a solid steel bar, so they are very hardy. They are made in the workshop in Germany where best quality stainless steel is used that’s absolutely anti allergic.  The laser engraving won’t rub off as it is “burnt” into the steel. Also the black and golden coating used is a special technical procedure that joints the surface of the steel and hardens it, so it is extremely hard wearing. And of course Kadogs are all dog lovers and have “test worn” the tags with three dogs for quite a while and the gemstones are fine, the engraving hasn’t suffered and they still look very good.

The tags are available in matte and polished finish.  On the polished surface you will see very fine scratches from the wear and tear, so if you’ve got a bit of a playful, rough little companion  we would recommend the matte finish, (either in basic steel colour or in black or golden).  If the dog is older and/or more gentle the polished ones are absolutely fine.  Of course Kadogs give a guarantee so if anything should be wrong with the tag, you can return it to Kadogs and get it replaced.

Kadogs tags are handmade in Germany with meticulous attention to detail and engraved with your name or telephone number (or any text of your choice.)
