ANTIQUE BRILLIANT BLUE IRIDESCENT ENAMELED MOSER GLASS SILVER PLATE CASKET BOX

A lovely and unusual antique glass casket box, a brilliant blue color glass with tiny iridescent flecks under the glass, with hand painted enamel decorative designs on all sides and top. Square in shape with pillow top rounded corners, measures 4 3/8" square by 3 1/2" high. Heavy in weight, silver plated band with hinged top. The inside has original satin lining. The box is dated to the victorian era, late 1800's. The box displays very well although the one back corner of top has been slightly ground down due to a chip with some enamel loss in that area (see last picture), also the silverplate is worn off in some areas. But, as I said it does display very well and is an unusual box with the iridescent flecks in the glass, which makes the blue even more brilliant. I am doing a buy it now on the box with the damage in mind, otherwise this box would go for much more. A fine box for the collector. Please take a look at my other fine antiques that I will be listing throughout the week, thank you
