Easier to photograph before we clean it to ist bright and shiny appearance, this brass casket is late 19th century. It is set with 9 circular gemstones: cabachon cut sardonyx: banded agate. It is 18 cm wide, and 9 cm deep. It is 15 cm tall. The brass sheeting is over a wooden structure. Most of this sort of box (brass and sardonyx) were designed for mens' accoutrement, so it is probably originally a masculine possession.
