The couple, whose young wife is crowned with a crown of roses, approaches an altar. The base of the altar is decorated with a medallion representing a quiver and a torch symbols of Love and Hymen. The symbols used in this composition show the sentimental nature of the box. A yellow gold mounting embellished with an interlaced motif frames the box and a central, oval medallion..
