Gilt metal, sardonyx

German. Circa 1880.

Chamfered hinged top, side panels with alternating striations mounted in crosshatched gilt metal mounts on spherical feet. Sardonyx is endemic to India and has been imported to the west from at least the 4th century BCE. The stone was favoured throughout history not only for its decorative quality but for its layers which lend themselves to the carving of polychromatic cameos.
