Small walnut cassone nicely decorated with inlays of boxwood fillets and ivory ornaments.
The facade has in its center an oval coat of arms carved and surrounded by a wreath in garlands of laurel leaves.
This central decoration is flanked on each side by ivory inlays each representing the coats of arms of the two families in a decoration of flowers, foliage and ribbon, framed by a herringbone frieze.
We find the same decoration on the sides of the Cassone, the coats of arms here giving way to female faces wearing flower baskets.
It will also be noted that the motif of the carved coat of arms on the facade is reproduced inlaid in ivory on the cover and embellished with two charming winged female grotesques.
This charming wedding chest, late Renaissance, rests on four feet in `` lion claws '' surmounted by an overhanging molded cornice.
