Favourite Item
This fine, antique Viennese casket is ornately crafted in precious lapis lazuli and silver mount by Herman Bohm, an Austrian maker active in the latter half of the 19th Century. The hinged lid of the casket is surmounted by a couple sitting on a bench, mounted upon a plinth of silver and lapis lazuli, inset with precious stones and floral decorations in enameled silver. The body of the casket below the lid is formed of three tiers of lapis lazuli which grow bigger as one looks from top to bottom of the casket. The upper tier features a frieze of circular silver mounts set with precious stones and with a bearded male figure at each corner. The middle tier is mounted with silver arches containing enameled figures, with a roundel above each arch that are all set with precious stones. Around the sides of this tier stand enameled columns mounted with silver, each surmounted by figures and busts. The lower lapis lazuli tier is mounted with a frieze of silver and precious stone roundels, set upon a silver mount and enamel base with floral decorations and four paw feet.
There are maker's marks and silver marks on the base and feet of the casket.
