Lancashire Museums have a beautiful example of a late Stuart embroidered casket - The Bourne Casket - which you can see open here, showing all the drawers and compartments.
There are three small and one long drawer all fronted with beautiful salmon silk-velvet edged with similar ribbon. Inside is the original fitted mirror in a recessed panel. But the real excitement comes within hidden lower compartment. It contains a small box within which is an acorn from the Boscobel Oak covered in silk embroidery and silver-gilt brocade!
The casket has its own carrying case thought to be of pine. It is covered with a hand-painted floral design paper whichis probably of a later date.
On the lid is an embroidered panel depecting Rebecca at the well. This is a lovely spouting fountain, a regular sight on Stuart panels - as is the castle beyond.
On one side is Joseph leading Mary on a Donkey.
On the back is Abraham sacrificing Isaac. Below you can see the other side panel which portrays the meeting of Solomon with the Queen of Sheba.
