Fabulous & rare 19th century Napoleon III or Victorian era gilt pressed ormolu & thick beveled glass pocket watch display casket, a charming little vitrine with hunt themed figures in pressed repousse including horses, hounds, hunters, game hens and even a fox! These little pocket watch caskets are always a treat, especially when we find them with such a distinct hunting theme! A multi-figure fox & wild boar hunting scene unfolds around the entire thin pressed repousse sides, even the hound chasing a fox on the top! Riders on horseback, a hunter on foot with several leashed hounds and a fleeing stag!! Fabulous! Some age, a flaw or two but what a gentlemanly way to display a treasured heirloom or antique timepiece!
Very good condition. As evident in the images, the interior fabric is a bit aged but original and intact. No damage to the figural sides, etc., but there is a small chip in the upper left corner of the beveled glass, mostly hidden by the mounting tabs though. See pictures for measurements.
