Large florentine Book Bible Box Family Crests & Figures

Fabulous old large Florentine box the size to hold a book, Bible or other treasures, of fine hand painted and gold gilt on gesso on wood, with the front the famous decoupage style art the Italians do so well in their Florentine items. It features a group of figures Shakespeare era maybe, in lovely period costumes, and underneath family crests and writing we think is Latin or Greek, not sure. The back of the box is shiny gold gilt, the spine is red with gold gilt designs, and the other three sides resemble book pages, very nicely done. This unique box measures 12 & 1/8" tall, 9" wide and is 2 & 1/4" thick on the outside, 1 & 5/8" deep on the inside. It is in good condition with mild age wear, minor scarring here and there, but very lovely and we have never seen another one like this.
