The casket measures 9 1/8 inches long, 4 3/4 inches wide and 4 inches tall. It has gold colored metal frame and hinge. The lid is hand painted with lovers embracing, seated in a landscape of trees, a lake and a building in the background. There is raised, ornate hand gilding framing this scene. The front panel has a large spray of vibrantly colored flowers framed in raised gold. Two side panels have similar flower bouquets. The back panel is richly gilded with elaborate hand gilding. The box is painted inside on all sides with beautiful flowers. There are 4 graceful feet supporting the casket. Condition: There is slight wear to some gilding. It is about 95% intact. The casket is in otherwise excellent condition.
