French Glass Casket Vitrine Jewellery Box Casket

This decorative glass vitrine was produced in France and dates to the 19th century, circa 1870. The lidded casket in the shape of a birds nest opens to reveal a dark pink silk buttoned cushion which is just perfect for storing your favorite jewelry or portrait miniatures (see last images for inspiration, items not included). The thick glass lid of this genuine antique casket is heavily bevelled adding to the sheer opulence of this piece, all four feet are original. We love the woven metal design, this is one of the most unusual examples that we have seen.

This truly is a grand French decorative antique that looks amazing displayed on its own or with other French vitrines. Please see our collection of 19th century French vitrines listed separately in our store.

Measuring: Diameter 5.75 inch (14.5 cm) by height 3.25 inch (8.5 cm). Opening diameter approximately 4.75 inch (12 cm).

Condition: Very good with the usual age darkening to the gilt and wear to the silk cushion interior as one would wish to see on a genuine example from this period.
