Another favorite was this amazing casket which was made in 1875 or 1876 for the famous R. & S. Garrard & Co., Crown Jewellers from 1843 until 2007. Donated by Mercedes Bass, this piece is made of Macassar ebony, silver-gilt and gorgeous shell cameos. Victorians, never known to skimp on the details, frequently bejeweled their possessions. Garrard must have ordered an enormous number of cameos from a Neopolitan workshop for this case.
