    Zachary Taylor: Lovely Patch Box. These little boxes were meant to hold small cosmetic patches that ladies used to apply to their cheeks when such things were fashionable (before the days of body piercing). It is meant to appear like a book. The glass-covered front cover has a portrait of "Taylor," while the glass-covered back cover has a heart inscribed "Forget Me Not." We have seen other examples for George Washington, Lafayette, John Q. Adams, and Andrew Jackson. The covers tend to crack and the applied paper trim tends to pull off on most of these. Such is not the case here. This example is in excellent condition. The only fault, if it can be called that, is a detached cover which is the norm.
