A lovely 19th century carved oak casket, the top decorated with carved roses, fruit, acorns, foliage and other fruit and flowers, the sides are also decorated with carved with flowers and foliage, rings and ribbons and to the front a carved figure of Shakespeare and to the reverse, a carved figure of Anne Hathaway, all supported on carved lions feet to the corners. The casket is opened by pressing a very small button above Shakespeares head and this then reveals a velvet lined interior.
There is a slight loss to the carving on the lid and Anne Hathaways carving has a small mark, otherwise in very good condition.
