French Opaline Robin Egg Blue Glass Ormolu Mounted Egg Casket Jewelry Box Enameled Flowers Antique Egg Box Vanity Palais-Royal Egg


Only 1 available

A stunning French Art Glass blue Opaline egg casket mounted on a lovely ormolu stand. These wonderful glass eggs were very popular with the ladies from the mid 1700s all through the Victorian Era. It is very difficult to pinpoint the age of this particular piece but one would guess sometime in the 1800s.
This gorgeous rendition is executed in robin's egg blue with hand painted enamel decoration of colorful blossoms along the under plate. A beautiful piece with exquisite color in small form.
Eggs such as these were used to house perfumes, sewing kits or simply filled with the ladies favorite bon bon chocolate treat. Found in the Palais Royal area of Paris, the high society would purchase these as gifts for their beloved. Later, as more and more traveled abroad, these little beauties were purchased as a "Grand Tour" souvenir.
