This rare Gothic Cathedral Chest with curved lid has a wooden core of oak mesh inside. It is fully iron-braced on all sides and reinforced with wide studded bands, providing a beautiful and sober ornament to the whole. The wrought iron side handles have a ring at the end held by two movable rods. On the front, a central hasp lock is framed by two locks fitted with Gothic period padlocks.
Powerful in its structure, lines and dimensions, this impressive cathedral chest contained and protected the most beautiful church treasures.
