The Museum of the Middle Ages has a large chest of the same type in its collections (inv. Cl 13119, fig.a). Although larger in size, it has reached us in worse condition than the one in the Davioud collection, very similar to the chests appearing on an illumination of a manuscript kept at the Bibliothèque nationale illustrating "Louis XII receiving the homage of a book" (ms Fr 53, fol. 9, fig. b).
