Is it French or English?

Here is a lovely beaded casket that is reportedly French in origin, maybe because of the fleur-de-lis at the corners.  I can buy that because at that time the English royalists were in France and there may have been a great deal of cross-fertilization in the decorative arts.  There are several caskets with similar motifs in collections in England and the US.  But this design is certainly something to consider for a lovely beaded piece!
