Art Nouveau silver and gold metal quatrefoil antique French patch box embossed with stunning singular flower on front and fanciful decorations on the back. From 1900, in perfect condition and closes with a satisfying snap. Gold-wash inside box and original mercury glass beveled mirror with charming defects. Feels substantial and good in the hand. This patch box has a ring which allows it to be worn as a locket. It is 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. See example of antique patches in picture below.
