Alternative Views:



Extraordinary thistles and leaves embossed on silver plated patch box circa 1900. This very special antique silver plate patch box has heft and substance. The side and back are embossed with a reptile skin pattern surrounding a central fern leaf. The original mercury- glass mirror is beautifully beveled, with charming distortion in the reflected image. 1.75 inches across, and the price includes 1/4 oz (7.5 ml) solid perfume of your choice.

Patch boxes came into use during the 18th century at the court of Louis XV, where the use of "beauty patches" was popular. A beauty patch was made of gummed silk and was pasted on the skin as a "beauty mark" to emphasize a woman's facial feature, usually the cheek.
