A rare, large French antique jewellery casket.

This magnificent piece is made from neutral toned alabaster with golden ormolu mounts and a push front opening.

Perhaps the most magnificent thing about this casket is the dried flower diaroma which is inset into the lid and covered with a lightly domed glazing.

It does have some damages as noted below but the price reflects this.

It is large and heavy, suitable for holding larger jewellery items.
