Darling antique French pink opaline egg casket box in an ormolu wire basket. Hand painted enamel flowers and an insect embellish the top half of the box in the sweetest design. It is topped off with an ivy leaf finial. The casket is set in an adorable little ormolu wire basket with tendrils of ivy leaves spilling over the sides. The egg by itself measures approximately 3" high and with the basket, 4" high. It opens and closes tightly and has no cracks or chips. The gilt ormolu has a wonderful patina. From one of the Palais Royal shops. A hard-to-find piece!
