Elegant French Napoleon III jewelry casket box in gilt bronze and deep beveled crystal glass. The fire gilt bronze mount has classical lines which give it a regal appearance. The shell motif graces the corners of the top. A medallion with laurel leaf border accents the front . The side corners look like columns which rest on 4 raised paw feet. The box measures 4.25" square and is 3.5" high. It is a substantial piece weighing 1 pound 6 ounces. The inside has a beautiful moss green damask silk lining. The casket is in very good antique condition with some very minor surface scratches on the top glass and an interior chip (see last photo which has been taken in magnification and not nearly so noticeable when viewed with normal vision). A signature piece!
