Box is lined with green paper and casts are arranged on right side; on left are handwritten lists in Italian that identify the casts; medallions are mostly of mythological figures reproduced from Greek, Roman and Italian Renaissance works, as well as some works of Antonio Canova and Bertel Thorwaldsen who were active into the early 19th century.
