Gothic coffer book chest

The coffer is made of wood, covered with leather, with a metal lock and fittings. Leather straps were threaded under the bands on the side for it to be used as a carrying case. Attached to the inside of the lid is a woodcut depicting God the Father in Majesty; it is derived from a liturgical book printed in Paris in 1491.

A workshop and all joys are funded for the middle of the terms. The paths of the ceremony dresses in this ambit. Generations piled for the terms. Rate is held for the toiled items for the fundamentals by all people.
