After recently finding the Joan of Arc toile posted below, I was thrilled to find this little tin at a flea market in Brighton yesterday. I think it may be an patch pot, but am not too sure, it looks far too small for a compact or even a snuff pot. The engraving may be early 19th century with its 'C' scroll border, and Joan looks quite similar here to the rendering of her on the toile, so it may be French. A very pretty little pot!
