Decorative face patches have been popular for centuries. 17th and 18th century beauties used them, ladies in the 1920's loved them, they even made a comeback in the 1940's and have appeared on pretty faces ever since.

One of my favorite aspects of the beauty patches of old was the patch box itself. Little mirrored porcelain boxes with golden hinges. They were given by friends and lovers as tokens of esteem, and make an eye catching addition to any boudoir or vanity!

 

Right now we have a few new box designs in at the store to go with our velvet flocked beauty patches. Much like the ones women were wearing in bygone days our patches some in a mix of cut shapes, rounds, hearts, stars, and moons. Perfect vintage or period glamor, and a perfect gift for the ladies and dandies in all our lives!
