A rectangular casket in wood marquetry and gilt bronze mounts decorated with garlands, foliages and small pearls resting on four scrolling foliage. The four rounded faces and decreasing lid give to this casket a beautiful movement which evokes Louis XV style, largely imitated in the second half of the 19th century. The lid is decorated with a polychromatic oval porcelain plate depicting a putto playing with a dove on a cloud, flanked by a basket and a bouquet of flowers. The blue background is hightened with a golden and ormolu frame chiseled with scrolls, ova and foliage. Original light blue fabric. Signed " JENSEN 18, rue Favart Paris".
