Georgian Lady Hope Patch Box

$900.00


Description

DATE: George III, c.1790

This very special little object is a patch box... dating from the late 18th Century it would have been used to store cosmetic patches, worn on the skin to cover blemishes. It's likely French origin, crafted in silver, with a beautiful miniature painting on the top (under domed glass) depicting Lady Hope leaning on an anchor by the sea awaiting the return of her lover, with a ship in full sail on the horizon. It was made around 1790, and remains in fantastic condition.
