This parallelepiped shaped wooden chest has a tri-faceted lid and is covered with gilt-leather. Both the leather and the gilding have a punched decoration. The first is geometric and the second is botanical, which indicates that the piece was gilded at a later date, probably during the 17th century. Trimmed nails secure forged iron bands that in turn gird the main body, lid, sides and base of the piece, probably intended to attach the leather. At the back two hinges connected the lid. The centre front of the lower section has a lock with two latches, of which only one remains. A handle, also of forged iron, is positioned in the centre of the lid and is attached to two flower shaped rings. The interior is lined with red leather, velvet of the same colour having been glued over this at a later date.
