An early 17th Century architectural Flemish antique Malines alabaster and wood table casket / box, circa 1600.

This box, decorated with alabaster, is characteristic of the early modern arts and crafts in Mechelen. Between the 1560s and 1630s, the city was one of the most important European centers for the manufacture of alabaster objects. It was no coincidence that the Malines alabaster became famous.

The front and sides comprise applied alabaster colonnade decoration. The hinged-lid is inset with two further alabaster panels of geometric design.

Each end of the box hides secret drawers.

The lid opens to reveal an interior fitted with a small till.
