Lovely, large antique French Napoleon III era green opaline glass “egg” shaped casket, a chatelaine style etui with ornate reticulated gilt ormolu top & bottom finial style fittings, ruby or cranberry glass bead base dangle and fine condition! One of three old French ‘egg’ caskets that we’re adding today, each with its own unique style (and a flaw or two). This one in opaque green opaline glass with a satin exterior, glossy interior and jewel like appearance. Wonderful decorative accents all, even with the age related flaw or two. We have a nice collection of antique French opaline pieces so, be sure to browse some while you’re with us. Thanks!
Good to very good condition. This one is missing the upper portion of the clasp so does not latch closed and it’s also missing the chain and finger ring that would have been attached to the top (easily restored with a quick trip to Michaels or Hobby Lobby jewelry sections though). No chips or cracks to the glass egg. See pictures for measurements.
