Late 18th Century Ivory and Gold Patch Box

Patch box in ivory and gold. The hinged lid is decorated with a greyscale miniature on ivory featuring a young woman near an altar. A young man behind a tree is spying on her, spurred on by a cupid. The interior of the box is lined with red velvet and a mirror. During this period, both men and women would attach small black patches of taffeta or velvet to their faces as beauty marks that would create contrast and accent the whiteness of their skin.
