Antique French vanity standing casket with pink ruffled liner modeled in shape of a mandolin on a stand. Signed Depose. Made of a gilt metal. The face of the mandolin opens to reveal the interior. A unique vanity item, I'm not quite sure what it was meant to hold. Possibly a pocket watch or special brooch?
Measures; 7 1/2 Inches Tall by 5 Inches Wide by 3 1/2 Inch deep approximately.
Overall very good condition some gilt loss in scattered small areas and the lid interior material has some staining.
