DATE: Georgian, c.1760

A stunning early 18th century patch box constructed in 18 karat gold and agate. The design and quality are exceptional, with wonderfully intricate gold work with urn, floral, shell, and rococo motifs applied over the Montrose lace agate base and lid. It dates from the 1760s, with French control marks stamped on the inner lip. The original mirror - now beautifully distressed - is present under the opened lid. A fantastically rare and beautiful object.
