Calendar Add to the calendar

Visitors to the Museum have the chance to appreciate the exceptional group of 101 cases which, together with the 23 on display in the Dauphin’s Treasure gallery, comprise one of the most complete holdings of its kind in the world, with examples from the 16th to the 18th centuries. These cases were designed to protect the valuable and unique objects in the Treasure, for which reason each one has a diff erent shape. They have wooden cores and are lined with diff erent materials.

Most of the cases are covered on the outside with fi ne leather decorated with dry stamping and gilt tooling of primarily heraldic motifs, particularly the emblems of the Grand Dauphin. Other cases are covered in costly fabrics such as velvet.
