The inspiration for this piece I got from Venice. There you can buy similar little wooden bookcases with little things in it: helmets, flasks, bottles,feather e.g.

In the case there are several books, a Venetian mask, 2 caskets, scrolls, keys, a violin, a skull, a chessboard, a lantern, an old map, 2 real miniture bottles, a real miniature copper mortar, a telescope and an inkpot with feather.
