Thanks for posting this. Hardened leather cases seem to have been
fairly common for all manner of objects in the medieval period.
There's a rather nice and elaborate one among the regalia of the Holy
Roman Emperors for the crown. It would make an interesting research
project to look at things like this from the "general structure of
boxes" angle -- looking at construction techniques and whatnot.
