19th Century Notre Dame Jewellery Casket

19th Century Notre Dame Jewellery Casket


Antique gilt metal and cut glass souvenir from Lourdes

Underneath the chunky cut glass top a metallic foil image depicts a woman witnessing a miracle sighting of the Lady Madonna at Lourdes, it is inscribed underneath 'Notre dame de Lourdes' and would have been a souvenir bought there in the late 19th century.

The main body of the casket it highly decorative gilt metal (probably tin) with naturalistic decoration and standing on equally decorative feet. 

This little box is in great vintage condition, the glass is free from damage as is the image. The gilding is still very bright and shiny. The interior is clean. The mirror on the reverse is worn somewhat. Please see photographs. 

Measuring 6cm wide X 6.5cm deep X 4.5cm high.
