Glorious cranberry glass casket with colorful enamel work all around. Images of green and gold leaves with blue berries and butterflies. When I purchased this piece, there was no period listed, but I would estimate it to be from Napoleon III era (Victorian). When the light passes through, it's really breath-taking. The box measures 7" long by 4" high (deep) by 4 1/4" wide. It sits on elaborate ball feet surrounded by scrollwork. The handles on each side move; they aren't stationary. The bronze does have some green verdigris patina.
