More information

The metal box is completely covered with black leather. The decoration is richly chased, a technique in which the decoration is beaten into the metal with a punch, with symbolic illustrations, including a Burgundian fire steel and garlands. The lid is stuffed, which means that it has a curved surface with a regular curving. The inscription 'oy parut' can be read on the lid. The word 'parut' is a conjugation of the verb 'paraître' and can be translated as 'appeared'. Such chests were used for storing money, valuable documents and jewels. Probably they were also used as bridal chests.
