Casket with Scenes from the Life of Christ


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This casket consists of six ivory panels, five of which are carved in openwork with scenes of the life of Christ. Previously described as 15th-century English work, the object has been identified as an early 19th-century creation by the 'Master of the Bearded Men Forgeries", based on the rough carving as well as iconographical and stylistic inconsistencies.
