This French antique Jewellery casket from the early 19th Century is up for auction in Bonhams Period Design auction on December 10th. The casket is made of pressed gilt brass and Mother of Pearl and is formed as a miniature dressing chest. The piece contains two pieces of paper one which reads 'This pretty toy was given to Georgina when she was ten years old by Mary, Duchess of Gloucester, who had requested to see her.' Despite its Royal link, it has a relatively low estimate of £600-900.
