19th Century French Glass Slipper Box

This piece definitely has fairy godmother written all over it. Crafted from delicate ormolu. It's feet have magically formed from golden fleurs upon which the glass sits. The hinged lid opens to reveal a silver silk tufted interior. The sides of the box bubble out around it giving it a sort of Cinderella carriage effect.
