The casket with top, side and base panels worked in moss agate stone, the agate panels held in a chased and gold-plated frame, on four agate stone ball feet.

This style of agate casket is closely associated with the Palais-Royale, the Paris residence of the House of Orléans. From the 1780s onwards the site was used not only as a private residence, but also incorporated a shopping and entertainment district open to the public. It remained one of the most prestigious of Paris' shopping districts throughout the 19th century.
