A fine and rare Renaissance period cedarwood box on later oak stand. The box is typical of these early Italian examples where some design is cut out in low relief and then detail added with poker work or pyrography. The scenes depicted on the box are here all religious. The front design has as is often the case faded and all that can be made out are elements of the crucifixion. The interior design is beautifully clear and bright and shows the life of Christ with in the four corners the emblems of the Evangelists. The box is in very good condition for its age, the interior has been removed but the rest is all original even the metalwork. The whole has a great patina and colour. The box would have originally stood on sledge feet however these have been removed probably in the eighteenth century to fit it to the stand. The stand is in oak and English, it is most likely eighteenth century and made for the stand. The base is in good condition with some old woodworm damage around the feet. This is a very rare and early item, which is actually useful as a side table, and has a great early look. C.1580.
Overall sizes in inches, including stand:
28 1/2 wide
17 1/4 deep
30 1/2 high
