Doll House Opulence


While surfing the web, I came across an antique dealers site selling furnishing for doll houses.  Most pieces were priced in the 250 - 750 price range,  They were fabulous, but this one is outstanding and so is the price.
French antique Cast metal gilt Miniature Boule Vitrine. 8" (20 cm.) x 5 1/4".  Of heavy cast metal the miniature vitrine in the Louis XVI style, has elaborately detailed carving,  unusual front with set-back side sections, six curved feet, & mirrored interior, glass also on sides.  2 shelves lined with velvet. It has a closure on the back & inside, under the glass area you see is a hidden compartment in the base. The underside has raised mark "Depose N. 25". Excellent condition, very rare to find, you normally only see single cabinets. French, c1880.  1295.00
