This is a very smart pair of cassolettes is French, C.1860.
They are marble, mounted in ormolu, which still retains its original gilding.
This type of lidded vase, usually with a fixed lid, as here, were much collected in the 18th and 19th century as a way of displaying specimen minerals, much prized as works of nature in an era which had a growing regard for natural world. In this case the green marble with the beautiful markings is Greek, from the quarries of Thessalis.
