Wonderful decorative Antique French Gilt Ormolu Jewelry Casket with beveled glass top. In the late 1800's and early 1900's these boxes were sold as Grand Tour Souvenirs to traveling nobility or the "well to do". This charming piece shows wear, but is a little gem to display on your vanity to hold your diamonds, or two little paper wrapped chocolate bonbons. The glass is set in diamond pointe gold plated brass.
A little shabby, the metal base is highly ornate but does have wear to the gilt, it's reflected in the price. Inside, the pink lining has little pink buttons. 3~1/8" x2~1/8" x 2" high.
