Bilston Enamel Motto Compact Patch Box

Bilston Enamel Motto Compact Patch Box Bilston Battersea Patch %%alt5%% %%alt6%%
This is a fabulous Bilston piece - Pink enamelled with a fabulous edged white to the words "A present from Lancaster" - It uses the letter "f" rather than "s", this was dropped from the English language in 1780, giving us some sort of time line. Oval shaped, measuring c. 1.5/8" inch across the top, the top is secured to the hinge at the back and fits snugly opening to reveal a mirror to the top, I think it is more likely to be a patch box due to the mirror. There are a couple of hairline flaws commensurate with age (see supersized pics), but they do not detract in my opinion, a small amount of enamel is missing to the base. So difficult to find these rare original pieces in this sort of order. Dating 18th Century, it is a delicate piece that has however survived - I know this will find its way to an appreciative buyer. FREE POSTING & INSURANCE Do not hesitate to call or email for more details of this special piece.
