This is without doubt the finest glass and bronze doré casket we have ever had the pleasure to own.
Incredibly rare, this two tier casket or trinket box just oozes quality. It is thick bevelled glass set in the most stunning ormolu or bronze doré, decorative frame and is raised on four matching legs.
The craftsmanship is exquisite and we can only imagine the delight of the traveller who originally purchased this beautiful box to display the little treasures that they had most probably picked up during their "grand tour".
The original silk lining is still very good for the age and adds to the sense of opulence of this beautiful box.
There are two doors which open to allow access, one to the front of each tier.
The beautiful open, two story design is crafted in such a way to allow plenty of light in so that each piece within can be seen and enjoyed.
Such a rare survivor in fabulous condition for the age. Just a couple of nibbles to the corners of the glass as is almost always the case with glass boxes of this age and is of little to no consequence. The hinges and clasps are good and work as they should.
Please see the photographs for clarification.
