This is a listing for a vintage or antique French (not sure of exact age) blue glass locking sugar casket or jewelry box! The casket is made of thick light sky blue art glass and features gold toned bronze intricate feet, a center lock mechanism as well as the joiner in the center. The box is a rounded square in shape and features hand painted enamel accents in gold and white swirls and scenes of stunning cartouches of Cherubs reading, playing and frolicking on three sides of the casket!
The casket has a locking mechanism at the frontside and includes its original key with pink matching tassel on it. The key does sit nicely in the lock but does not unlock or lock the casket since one piece of it has broken off with age. The box is see through and is pretty lightweight for its size. The piece is unmarked anywhere and is clean inside and out and has cracks and only one chip inside near the lock where it has bowed out and the lock inner is bent. Some of the metal has patina and the underside feet are mostly missing the foot pads and have tarnishing.
This is a STUNNING sugar casket or jewelry box for any home or collector! MEASURES: 6" tall including feet and 7" wide.
