These cassettone’s are very rare, there is an example in the V&A. The central drawer with a carved coat of arms is most unusual as they generally feature grotesque masques. The quality of the carving of the bambocci figures is exceptional

According to Renesse’s Figures Heraldiques, both Restes & Roger de Cahussac of Languedoc have arms bearing a fess and a wheel. The finely carved figures are a feature of these cassettone’s.
The late Lord Belstead, Great Bealings, Suffolk. Lord Belstead was regarded by many as an exceptional politician. His quiet, courteous and straight forward manner led to an unusually long and successful career, beginning as a junior minister in Margaret Thatcher's Education & Science Department and ending as Leader of the House of Lords, Lord Privy Seal, Paymaster General and Chairman of the Parole Board. Lord Belstead loved the Suffolk countryside and was known and respected by people of all backgrounds and from 1994 he was Lord Lieutenant of Suffolk.

Lord Belstead's father, Jack Ganzoni, Member of Parliament for Ipswich, was one of the House of Commons most flamboyant figures. Created a Baronet in 1929, in 1938 Neville Chamberlain elevated him to the House of Lords in recognition of his work as an MP as the 1st Baron Belstead.
