This is a nice English enamel box which is "a Trifle from London." The best part of it is that, besides it's awesome condition for it's 200 plus years, is that it has a drawing of the famed St Paul's Cathedral on it. It is a patch box (these are the ones that had mirrors so a lady could apply her patch to her face) and it really appears to have it's original mirror which is very , very, rare. The mirror is not even cracked, though it has silver loss, of course. The box closes well, and the only enamel loss is a very small place on the side to bottom. The box measures 1 and 1/2 inches East to West, and almost 1 and 1/4 inches North to South. It's so nice, and rare, to find these boxes in decent condition.
