Excerpt from Bulletin of the Pennsylvania Museum: October, 1915
The next in point of age probably is that represented in no. 2. This also shows true linen-fold paneling. In the center runs a carved piece with female and crowned male figures.
Three pieces are plainly ... Elizabethan in period, as shown by the elaborate ribbon or interlaced strap and rosette design, although the style also appears in France. Number 3 is a fine example of the style prevailing in the second half of the sixteenth century. Figures of a unicorn and of a boar occupy the two upper panels. Another of this group is more elaborately carved with all - over finely wrought design of closely interlaced strap and rosette work. In the third piece of the group, the same or similar design is carved on five broad bands divided by narrower plain spaces. A fine entire chest Of this period, the front of which is richly carved in the same style, serves to illustrate the nature of the exhibit. Another, similar in design but of Obviously later date, also is interesting as showing the early introduction Of the Renaissance cherub - as well as the use of the carved moulding as a frame to the panels.
