This majestic gilt bronze casket is designed in the French Neoclassical, or Louis XVI, style. It was made in the 19th century and features the later addition of veneered panelling in the semi-precious stone lapis lazuli. The gilt bronze case has been cast to depict multiple elaborate motifs including cherubs, flowers, masks, acanthus leaves and foliates. The casket comes complete with a key and hinged cover, opening to reveal a velvet lined interior.
 
The piece can be enjoyed simply for its beauty as a decorative work of art, or alternatively used to store precious objects and jewellery.
