Extraordinary Alligator-Patterned Sterling Silver Patch Box With Appliqué Rose Garlands From the 1800's.
Extraordinary alligator-patterned sterling silver antique patch box from the 1800's. This elegant box is beautifully embossed with finely rendered alligator texture on the top, bottom and sides of the box. Encircling the box is a beautifully rendered appliqué garland of roses attached with silver ribbons and a delicate silver braid. Two hallmarks: one on the bottom of the box and one inside the lid. Has original beveled mirror inside box. 1.5 inches across, and the price includes 1/4 oz (8 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.
