Additional information
  • Remarkable Mid 18th Century “Remember The Giver” Battersea Patch Box. Measures 1.50 x 1.25 x 1″ | Retains the original label from the well respected Guitel Montague, 599 Madison Ave. in NYC. The Battersea boxes, which originated in the mid-18th Century, are covered in enamel or porcelain. The originals were small, some as tiny as a dime, and made of copper covered with a white enamel embellished with mythological beasts, portraits, classical and religious themes. Their purpose was both decorative and sentimental, as this box is.
