Lovely antique French Napoleon III to Belle Epoque era chatelaine style hand painted porcelain âeggâ shaped casket or etui with original gilt bronze ormolu chain, finger ring & fittings, pink finish with colorful floral decoration! In the always popular style of the Grand Tour era Palais Royal opaline eggs & trinkets, this one in porcelain but weâve also adding two opaline âeggâ caskets this week, among a host of marvelous other French opaline glass pieces, so be sure to browse some while youâre with us. Thanks!
Good condition. Unfortunately, this one has a hairline crack on the back side of the bottom of the egg. Itâs not in jeopardy of breaking, will still make a gorgeous decorative accent but, with the flaw, youâll be getting it for a steal. Original gilded hinged collar, chain & finger ring and even dangling base accent. See pictures for measurements.
