$145.00 $130.00

 

  • This case, also called a “casket” is made from paper mache.  The front cover has a hand painted gold floral motif, with the flowers being inlaid Mother of Pearl.  The gold trim decor on both sides is also hand painted. 
  • The interior has two red velvet pads with Victorian patterns, and a thick center holder that fits 2 1/4 Plate Size images.
  • It is interesting to note that these types of cases were all individually made, one of a kind. 
  • There are similar styles, inlay, etc.  however finding an exact duplicate is extremely unlikely.
  • Great addition to your collection!
