Victorian French Beveled Glass Pocket Watch Casket Box
An incredibly lovely 19th c. Victorian French Palais Royale beveled glass and brass ormolu watch display casket.
The casket's frame and feet are quite ornate gilt metal or brass. It has a hook for dangling a small pocket watch. The interior is tufted blue silk and in superb condition. The beveled glass is quite thick and beautiful and has a flip door.
It measures 4-1/2" tall to the top of the handle, 3" wide and 2-3/8" deep. It is in superb condition. If you run your hand around the edges, you can feel a couple of small flea bites which is not unusual.
This would have held a ladies pocket watch, but can not be used for other jewelry or display.
A lovely, rare piece!
