Both the cover and the body of the Russian casket are encompassed with an applied shaped, protruding scrolling border.


The domed hinged cover is ornamented with further filigree decoration accented with elevated lobed motifs in addition to an impressive central filigree decorated floral finial.


The cover secures with a shaped hinged clasp to a looped receiver attached to the body.
