IRON CASKET BEARING THE COATS OF ARMS OF THE "PEYER" AND "VON WALDKIRCH" FAMILIES
Losses in the paintwork.
This chest was probably made on the occasion of a marriage between members of the two families, i.e. "Peyer" and "von Waldkirch", which occurred several times in the 17th century.
The coat of arms of the Peyer family is shown mirror-inverted on the chest. It is not unusual for coats of arms to be depicted facing one another. In heraldry, this is known as "courtoisie".
