Antique French Palais Royal Porcelain & Gilt Ormolu Egg Casket
This delicate and lovely 19th century Napoleon III era Palais Royal porcelain egg casket is adorned with hand painted pink roses on a soft green background. It is beautifully supported by rich dore bronze mounts and rests atop four balled feet.
This delightful French treasure would have been sold in one of the famous Palais Royal boutiques of Paris as a souvenir for a well-to-do Grand Tour traveler.
The porcelain egg casket is in very good condition. There is a small paint flake below the clasp and a tiny scratch on the lower backside. These charming 19th century Palais Royal treasures are highly collectible today.
We welcome layaways.
