The wooden-framed vitrine with oval glass window at the side, is decorated with gilt-metal filigree borders suggesting flowers and vines, has tiny claw feet, and a wooden back that removes for access to the silk and velvet lined interior with tufted cushion for display. The vitrine interior exhibits silk and velvet flowers and a simple bridal coronet from the late 19th century, but would also be an excellent display for small dolls or accessories. Excellent condition. French, circa 1885.
