Casket from The Duchess of Roxburghe

Sotheby's offered a casket owned by the late Duchess of Roxburghe in May.  The Duchess had been one of the train bearers of Queen Elizabeth's train for her coronation.

The box is heavily degraded, has the story of Rebecca at the well on its sides, but has a lovely interior set of embroidered drawer fronts.  There are several views on the site.
