Bliston Enamel Patch / Snuff Box, Hunter & Dog

An antique English Bilston Battersea enamel on copper patch or snuff box, Georgian period, circa 1780. The lid shows a pastoral scene of a hunter and his bird dog. The hunter aims at a long-tailed bird in flight. He wears period dress of a blue coat, white breeches and a black hat. The black and white spotted dog is in movement, having just flushed the bird. The scene is painted within an oval black frame dotted with raised white enamel. Great detail!

The rectangular tapered base is enameled in bright pink, a mirror on the inside of the lid shows wear to the silvering, as can be expected.There is good patina to the copper and minor lining to the enamel.
