Gorgeous French cast metal Marie Antoinette style miniature vitrine, this one is especially rare with the original stain glass inserts on the side. A clear glass front with metal shelves and a bottom "hidden" shelf, unseen by the front to hold extra special treasures!
Dollhouse size it measures 8" high from the very top to the bottom and 5" across the back, about 2 3/4" deep, hard to measure because of the curve.
A door opens from the back to reveal the original mirror insert. It good antique condition, it does show some patina and some age to the metal and the old mirror shows a few spots, indicative of the true antique nature and age of the piece. Also true to the age, it is a very heavy piece.
The sweet little French treasure has atypically recessed cabinetry sides with pressed stain glass, blue in the front and green on either side, and six curved feet. Rare as typically there is only one glass piece to the front and not the extended sides and only 4 feet, making this mini vitrine so French Fabulous! Great for dollhouse or display of your most precious jewels or other small treasures.
* In the last photo you see it displayed with my dirty, creepy little French dolls and other items which are not included in the sale, this listing is for French vitrine only.
French in origin, circa I would say 1860-1800.
