A very decorative, circa 1850 French, scent casket or caddy covered in shagreen. The box has a glass top with bevelled edges and the top and base have a 1/2 decorative brass border. The interior of the caddy contains three clear perfume bottles with bevelled glass tops (one is chipped). The bottles are un-marked. While the box comes with a key, I don't think it is the original as it doesn't seem to turn. While there is some wear to this box, it does not detract from the warm, aged look of this wonderful unusual decorative piece. Measures: 7" W x 3 1/2" D x 3 1/2" H
