The cassone is essentially a pastiche: original late 15th century Venetian cabinet elements put together with Lombard painted panels, whose themes (The Baptism of Christ; St. Francis Receiving the Stigmata) are unusual for a cassone, and the gaps filled in with late 19th century materials. Probably purchased by the brothers Fausto and Giuseppe at the end of the 19th century, the cassone is still displayed--as are all other objects in the museum--in its original place, thus contributing to the authentic "time capsule" ambiance.
