Gold Vermeil Woodland Leaves and Berries

Alternative Views:

Sterling silver with gold vermeil wash on the outside of this antique Art Nouveau French patch box. Both the front and back are very textural with embossed woodland leaves and high-relief berries. The gold vermeil makes the leaves and berries beautifully two-tone silver and gold. Gold-wash inside box and and two hallmarks on the rim of the lid. It has a ring which allows it to be worn as a locket. Original beveled mirror in perfect condition magnifies the reflected image to show your whole face. Feels substantial and good in the hand. 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.
