Delicious antique French, gilt brass and bevelled glass jewelry / trinket box or casket, etched with charming floral and foliage motifs and lined with a blue silk padded cushion. This decorative confection has taken on a faded grandeur with loss of gilding, it is a little mishap-en ( as they often are ) , the glass panels have tiny nibbles and light scratches but they are all original and have no cracks or chips. I can see some damage to the top back brass floral motif ( please see last photo ). The blue silk cushion however is in good condition, it is loose so the buyer might want to stick it back to the base. Despite it's imperfections ,this decorative faded grandeur casket would make a superb addition to a period setting.Please study the photos as these form part of the description, if you need more please do not hesitate to ask. Dimensions : 3 x 3 1/4 inches 2 1/2 inches high
