Polychromed pastiglia decoration, and tooling; on either side of key-hole a pair of lovers in fashionable dress; busts enclosed in quatrefoil frames, and lion masks. On lid are knights, men astride lions, nude figures and nude torch-bearers. Style suggests a workshop in Lombardy (perhaps Verona). Metal handle on lid.
