Picture This CXXIX – Redux

Last night I watched the first episode of The Miniaturist, a television drama set in late seventeenth-century Amsterdam. The period-accurate attention to detail was astonishing.

At one point, the young Petronella approached and opened a coffre forte, virtually identical to those I have illustrated in this blog.

Excited as I was to see a coffre, I was a little disappointed it wasn’t screwed to the floor.
