pin-wheel pattern of four different beautiful flowers and leaves.

Original convex mirror in perfect condition. Two hallmarks on the edge of the lid. This patch box has a ring which allows it to be worn as a locket. It is 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. See example of antique patches in picture below.
