Need to find close up image of the knobs Medieval Arts & Crafts: The Treasury of Basel Cathedral
From The Treasury of Basel Cathedral (MMA). These fabric-covered boxes must have been fairly common in churches, altho few survive (to my knowledge). From Med. Arts & Crafts blog. Note the wooden balls embroidered w/sequins & pearls. The painting inside the lid is tempera on silk. Note also the multicolored fringe on the edge of the lid and the cord that restricts the opening of the box. The box sides are very thin, but the inside support is wood according to the accompanying text.
