ANTIQUE BEVELED GLASS & FILIGREE

RARE, LARGE
JEWELRY
CASKET

From Local Philadelphia Estate

A LARGE CASKET








This is a marvelous and rare estate antique ormolu and
beveled clear glass box. It has the kind of patina... that superb
warm golden glow... that comes only with the passage of
time.  The glass is in perfect condition...crystal clear.









 Its a superb vintage piece clearly made at a time when fine
jewels were the domain of royalty and the rich...this box is
like a jewel itself...very majestic & in excellent condition.










From the Estate Art Collection of Orchestra Violinist from Philadelphia
This piece is from a major collection of antiques and art collected by a former
Orchestra Violinist from Philadelphia who traveled extensively and collected
only the best American, European, and Asian antiques, art and sculpture.

































MEASUREMENTS:

6-1/4" Wide  x  6" Deep  x  3-5/8" Tall




































The metal work is a gorgeous antique gold...
very sophisticated and in excellent condition.
Much prettier than I could capture in my photos.
























What a luxurious and majestic way to display your finest
jewelry!  It is a rare casket by any standard with heavy, thick
lustrous beveled clear glass panels...can you imagine a
time when such lovely, beautifully handmade, intricate and
ornate boxes were available in  fine jewelry stores?  What
a time that must of been...the golden age of luxury...
a time of quality, taste and sophistication. 













These boxes have survived over 50 years of use and are ready
to serve for another generation.  Not at all like the poorly made
imports that break after one or two uses.  You can see and
feel the quality of these extraordinary caskets...much nicer
in person than I'm able to capture in my photos.











The lid is strong, stays open nicely. The hinges are
in perfect order. It is a lovely casket, both impressive
and important looking with more than ample space to
protect and display your fine jewels and treasures.
Perfect for necklaces, bracelets, pins, rings, cameos.











 Check my feedback...I think you'll get a feel for how
enthusiastically these fine boxes from an era gone are
appreciated. They're rare and becoming much harder
to find. The collection that I'm selling is substantial
& in my opinion are the best out there.








Condition:

The glass is in excellent condition without any
cracks or chips. So to is the metal with just the
slightest tarnish from age. The interior velvet
is in nice vintage condition as  shown...there
aren't any tears or holes. A very lovely box.


These estate pieces are of high quality, and they are being sold
in the old Ebay auction tradition without a reserve and with a low
starting  bid. Please study carefully before bidding, as sales
