I first saw one of these 19th century vitrine's many many years ago. I vowed to myself that day that somehow, someway, I would own one of these before I died.
So far it doesn't look like it's gonna happen. That vitrine I stumbled upon so many eons ago was priced at $300. I've seen maybe two at this price. Over the years others on Ebay have sold for over $500 and wayyyyyy over.
Should you ever find yourself lucky enough to come across one of these in person consider yourself lucky, take a good long look and appreciate!
