A Georgian gift

I have often wondered how far back gifts and souvenirs from Margate originate. The Victorians loved their crested china and paper weights, so how far back do gifts originate ? Well this Bilston Enamel Georgian patch box currently up for Auction on ebay at present pre dates 1800 and is the earliest gift I have ever seen.

Wont find too many of those kicking around Tony. All my crested stuff is much later Victorian and early 20th century.
