Jewel Casket , Glass & Brass, French, C. 1890

Standing ever so perfectly atop its four delicate brass feet this antique French, jewel casket is made of thick bevelled glass on all sides, the top and bottom held in place by dozens and dozens of fine brass prongs. .......With a delicately turned brass handle , making it possible to carry around if one finds the need. ......

The interior is in remarkably good condition and although the original blue silk lining is faded with the years , and a bit frayed in a couple of places , given its age I think it has mellowed nicely . And all the little silk buttons holding down the tufting, are still attached . The little latch makes it easy to open and close and the brass hook attached to the back awaits a pocket watch or other special pendant of your choosing ! Very lovely overall condition.
