A Queen Anne silver Patch or Counter Box.

A silver Patch or Counter box struck with the profile of Queen Anne, maker’s mark only, E.C. [?], circa 1710.

A large number of these small silver boxes, with pull-off die-struck lids, were produced, sometimes with matching light gauge counters inside. They are invariably struck with a maker’s mark only [although undoubtedly made in London] and the commonest maker is ‘T.K.’ This maker, unidentified, is more uncommon. This sort of simple box would have been sold at fairs and markets or by itinerant traders.
