This is a spectacular and quite regally cut crystal casket. It is not signed but many Baccarat crystal boxes were not signed. This one is attributable to Baccarat based on other listings. It has wonderful brass or dore bronze fittings including a shell shaped escutcheon with the original key in a working lock!
The gilt bronze banding exhibits egg and dart embossments. It has a cut starburst on the bottom. It is in excellent condition - the hinges work well and thre are no chips or cracks to the crystal. This is an excellent box and it is a nice size too at 5 1/2" wide x 4 1/2" deep x 4" high. Very heavy for its size. A real prize!
Worthy of note that WorldRareties sold the same one recently for more money and without the key!!
