This luxurious mother-of-pearl box is among a small number of surviving Spanish colonial boxes covered in mother-of-pearl inlay divided by thin borders of tortoiseshell or kingwood. These are thought to originate from Mexico or Peru, compare to a large desk and bookcase in the Victoria and Albert Museum and other museums. Some of these works of art are catalogued as "Peru or Philippines", with reference to artists from Manila producing such pieces for export to the vice-royalties.
