1800’s CUT GLASS JEWELRY CASKET – BACCARAT – CLEAR WITH ENCASED RED GLASS – This is a vintage jewelry casket which I believe is French Baccarat glass – it measures 5 1/8″ long by 3 1/4″ wide and stands 3 1/4″ high. It is hinged and metal trim may be ormolu. This is clear glass with 8 point stars hand cut into all four sides of the bottom and also into all four sides of the lid. The very top has a hand cut 16 point star. Inside is layered with deep red glass encased in the clear glass. The glass is very thick – in some places over 1/2″ thick. There is a small chip on the very bottom on one end. Bottom has many scratches – top has a couple of scratches. Metal has some wear – otherwise a very old and beautiful jewelry casket – probably mid-1800’s or older.
