This cabinet would have held a militia company’s valuables, such as drinking cups and guild chains. The imperial crown and the lily on the front panels pay homage to the sovereign, Emperor Charles V. Richly decorated and well preserved, this Gothic-style cabinet is considered one of the finest pieces of 16th-century furniture in the world.
