19C Wooden Casket Karlsbad Hardstone Mosaic Lid
This wooden box with rosewood veneer shows on the lid an amazing hardstone mosaic, a typical Karlsbad (or Carlsbad) work made of Aragonite, a stalactite stone from Carlsbad Caverns.
It is a very intricate floral work measuring 3.4 x 2.4 inches. In the middle a large cartouche ( 3.4 x 2.6 inches) with the inscription Karlsbad.
Around the mosaic and on the rim small metal baguette.
A wonderful old piece in very good condition. Lock but not key.
Measurements: 4 x 3 inches, 2.2 inches height.
