A very rare George II silver mounted tortoiseshell Patch Box made, most probably, in London circa 1740

The Patch box is oval in form with reeded silver sides and mounts. The pull-off cover, and base, are inset with tortoiseshell panels. The box is in excellent condition. Tortoiseshell Patch Boxes are exceptionally rare, this being only the second we have offered over the years.
