For your consideration is this antique Georgian Bilston Battersea patch or snuff box circa 1775. The “patches” they held were the faux moles you see on Rococo faces, which were very fashionable at the time. If you were well to do, you would skip using a pencil to paint them on and would instead opt for “patches” made of silk or mouse skin, which you would then paste to your face. It is made of hand enameled copper with a mirror inside the lid. The lid carries a hand painted motto of "Have communion with a few, Be familiar with one, Deal justly with all, Speak evil of none."

It measures just over 1.5 inches wide, 1.5 inches deep and is 1 inch tall.

The enamel is cracked and chipped (please examine photos) and the hinge is broken. Still a lovely and unique additional to anyones antique collection.
