Presented for your consideration is this sensational Victorian quadruple silverplated mechanical jewelry casket. It was made by the Pairpoint Manufacturing Company about 1894. This exact piece is pictured in the 1894 catalog reprint (no. 915, page 36) and featured on the cover as well. The double-sided box features an open work design of oak leaves and acorns. The two lids are engraved with a sweet floral motif. The handle rotates to open the lids by the pull chains and it works perfectly. The original silk lining is intact. The casket measures 8" high to the top of the handle, 6 1/2" long and 3 1/2" across. The bottom has the maker's "diamond P" trademark and numbered "915". The casket is in very good estate condition with no damage or restoration found.The silver has not been polished but I find noapparent plate loss. The only very minor flaw is a bit of fraying of the silk--see last photo.This Pairpoint jewelry casket is sure to be a worthy addition to any collection!
