This unusually shaped casket is from the turn of the century and is opalescent glass with all hand painting and enamels. The two miniature couples scenes are also hand painted.
There is gold paint loss on the handle at top. It almost looks better without the gold as it shows off the blueish of the opalescent glass. There are also a few minor missing paint flakes on the background reddish color. There are no chips, cracks or repairs.
The clasp and hinge are in good working order and the bezel is ding free. It measures 5 1/2" in height and 3 5/8" across at the base.
