19th Century Coconut Shell Hinged Box with Ormolu
19th century gilt metal mounted coconut shell hinged box. The polished coconut was made into a hinged box and mounted with gilt ormolu. Decorative figural clasp adds interest to this rare box. The box on pedestal measures 6.5" high by 4.5" diameter. The coconut is in fine condition, but the top half is a little loose in the mount. I assume that is from shrinkage over many years. You seldom find these pieces, and those set in sterling go for over a thousand dollars. Your opportunity to add this to your collection for a extremely fair price.
