Flask cases were used for storing and preserving bottles in an organised way in compartments, when travelling. The gold ornamentation, for economy of means, was only applied on the neck of the flasks, visible when the box was open.
The exterior of the case is reinforced by iron edges and angle bars, as well as side handles allowing the safe transportation of its contents. Inside it holds 12 jars for various liquids, such as scented water and aromatic oils. The spherical lids ensure that the contents are perfectly preserved. The inside of the case is also carefully made: lined with ornate paper, the inside of the lid is cushioned, suitable for the transport of delicate objects.
