1850's Bohemian Ruby Gilded Art Glass Coffin & Liquor Bottles

DESCRIPTION: This circa 1850 Bohemian large art glass coffin/box is a fabulous treasure. Surprises await when the lid is opened. There we also find two elegant matching bottles, used to contain valuable spirits such as sherry, fine whiskey, brandy, etc. These bottles were safely kept inside the locked box (now without the key). The LARGE SIZES of the box and bottles are: Box, 7 1/2" x 5" x 5"; Bottles each, 3 3/8" x 4 3/8" x 4 ½". This rich ruby red colored glass is of the finest quality, with the set weighing 6 pounds 4 ounces. The ornate hinged casket has gold dore hardware with a pretty embossed design. The set is lavishly gilded on all sides, including the stoppers. The designs were gilded by expert craftsmen. Note that the tops of the stoppers have slightly different designs. Each design identified the exact contents of its bottle.

CONDITION: The box and one bottle have no issues—no chips, cracks, hairlines, loss of gilding, or restoration. The other bottle has a perfect appearance, but the stopper is stuck and there is an unseen chip on the base. It is located close to a corner and measures 1/4" x 3/8". It may only be seen when the bottle is turned upside down. I have had this set displayed for years, but due to my recent move there is no longer a proper place for it to be shown. Therefore, it must find a new home where it may continue to be admired. As always, your complete satisfaction is guaranteed.

Please contact me with any questions you may have. LAYAWAY terms, for as long as six months, may be arranged, but please contact me prior to placing your purchase order if you prefer this option

This is an extremely heavy set, with a weight of 6 pounds 4 oz. The coffin, bottles and stopper will be wrapped separately in layers of bubble wrap. The items will be double boxed. The package will be shipped by REGISTERED Priority Mail, with full insurance. The cost for this special shipping method has been included in the purchase price.
