Base to the Jeweled Casket
Edward Everett Oakes (American, 1891–1960)
Object Place: Boston, Massachusetts, United States

A wooden stepped base made of laurel, having rounded corners, provides a setting on which the casket rests. At each corner, a circular depression set with onyx within a petaled silver frame is designed to receive each of the faceted amethyst feet of the box. A plain rectangular silver plaque, with small finger grips at each narrow end, serves as a handle for a chamfered lid that is seated above a small recess in the base.

This object number refers to the base and its detachable lid. The artist also made a walnut box in which to store the jeweled casket (unnumbered).
