Eighteenth century enamel oval hinged box for patches with a mirror to the inside of the lid.. A fashion statement in the C18th were silk shaped gummed patches to cover up flaws possibly smallpox scars. Patch peddlers sang out:
Heer patches are of ev'ry cut for pimples and for scarrs
Heer's all the wand'ring planett signs
And some of the fixed starrs.
Already gummed to make them stick
They need no other sky
Nor starrs, for Lilly for to view to tell your fortunes by.
Commensurate with age.
