Vintage STAFFORDSHIRE Porcelain Trinket Box - Unto the End, I Love My Friend!
Vintage STAFFORDSHIRE Porcelain Trinket Box - Unto the End, I Love My Friend
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: My best guess is C.1960 or so
ITEM: Nope, definitely not an original Battersea or Bilston enamel box, patch box, trinket box from the old days. What it is though is a nice vintage, "copy of" a Victorian enamel patch box. The giveaway? The front bit of curlicue metal work to the front - the old boxes did not have such a splashy display! Done in white porcelain, the top of the box reads "Unto the End, I Love My Friend"; the interior is plain white and the outside bottom of the box is cobalt blue with the bottom corners showing a bit of worn blue revealing the white on the underside.
CONDITION: No breaks, cracks, repairs, etc. Wear as mentioned above.
METAL CONTENT: Base metal? Brass metal? I really do not know.
HALLMARKS: None I can find.
SIZE: 1-1/2" x 1-5/16" x 1-1/8" high.
FINAL COMMENTS: The box definitely does have a patina of age to it. Surely someone will give it a new home!
