An important rectangular cut-crystal casket with lobe-shaped pattern on the body and radiating motif at the top of the lid. Ormolu frame and key hole very finely chiselled with small flowers, scrolls and foliage. Two medallions representing Saint-Jacques shells flanked by flowery garlands decorate both side faces of this casket resting on four shells feet flanked by scrolling foliage and acanthus leaves. We notice the remarkable quality of cut crystal and carving with two golden nuances evoking the jewelry fine work.
