Delightful antique French Napoleon III era 5 5/8" tall gilt ormolu & beveled glass miniature vitrine, a doll sized display in an ornate Louis XV or rococo style with figural Vernis Martin top, cabriole style legs and beveled mirror backing! Lovely! About the size of our pocket watch or jewelry display caskets, the piece stands a total of 5 5/8" tall and is 4.5" wide. The Vernis Martin style figural top panel does have some damage to it but you can still see the Jean-Honoré Fragonard style romantic figures in the center. An opulent accessory for an opulently appointed doll house display or, great for showing off a pocket watch, pendant or other small treasure. Highly ornate and, with a nod to the top panel, in wonderful condition! Quite unique.
Very good condition. As noted, the top panel does have some damage. There are a few dark spots to the mirror. There is a chip to the upper rear corner of the right side's glass panel, no other chips that I can see to it or the other beveled glass panels. The bottom of the casket is in card with a fabric covering and it does have a bit of a bow to the center but original and so we've left it as is. See pictures for all measurements.
