 This is a lovely really tiny Enamel Patch Box - would you believe this dates from circa 1790?  This is a remarkable survivor. There are some minor age imperfections - but more often than not, one has to accept these little boxes with lots of damage... Even the original mirror inside, worn though it is through time, is there and not cracked.  The majority of mirrors in these little boxes are badly cracked and that is little wonder as the box is over 230 years old!  It has the most wonderful verse on the lid "Take this Dear Girl, May you prove true, Till I return, From Sea to you".  Isn`t that so lovely!  I so hope the lady did in fact stay true to her loving Sailor Boy.   The little patch box opens on a hinge - and that still functions well.  The pink enamel outside and the white enamel inside as mentioned above have little faults but are amazing for the age and material of this item.  Enamelled on metal. 








 I love it  - it measures jut over 1.5 inches wide, and is about 3/4" high.  This is just so perfect for your favourite doll to hold - put in her trunk of treasures or perhaps on a display table.  It could contain a dolls necklace, earrings or whatever.  It is quite wonderful.   If you wish to purchase or have a query, do Contact me by clicking on the "Contact Us" button either on the side or the bottom of this page.  I will consider payment in split payments if required - but don`t miss it!
