Antique French watch holder vitrine box cranberry glass ormolu

I absolutely love these adorable French glass pocket watch holders! They are perfect to hold not only a prized pocket watch, but also a special memento. The holder is hand blown cranberry glass with a clear beveled glass door. The glass box is set in luscious gilt ormolu. It dates to the late 19th century. The piece measures 3.25" long by 2" wide (widest point) by 2.75" high. It does have a couple of issues which are not major but need to be addressed. The holder ,at one time, had a hook inside to hold the watch. It is sadly missing. Also, there is a tiny flea bite on the inside glass of the door which is shown in the last photo. I have priced the piece accordingly. It is still a wonderful piece to use and treasure and the flaws only point to a piece that has been loved.
