Antique jewelry box

This fabulous antique jewelry box or casket was sold for $11,000 in 2007. Holman’s detailed description of the antique jewelry box helps us understand why the casket was so unique: This antique jewelry box is a mid-19th century antique Italian ebonized jewelry casket with 89 hand painted enameled panels set in with rosettes & braided wire, Roman figural finials, four full caryatid columns, cherubs riding swans to corners & top, applied metal faces & florals, multiple doors & drawers with interior & exterior decorations. The antique jewelry box measures 16″h x 14″w x 11″d. [Photo courtesy of Stuart Holman] [Article source: Victoriana.]
