This is an adorable little English patch box, made in the 19th century. It is hand-enameled in the Battersea style. The top of the box depicts a charming pastoral scene, with two men fishing by a lake, boats in the distance, and quaint houses and trees on the surrounding land. It is a beautifully detailed scene. The bottom of the box is a lovely bright, almost lime green.
This box measures 2 1/4" x 1 5/8" x 1 1/8". It is in very good condition. There are two tiny chips in the green enamel on the body of the box. There is also a small surface crack on the inside of the lid, but it does not penetrate through to the top of the lid and cannot be seen when the box is closed. The lid closes and fits perfectly. Circa 1850
