Secular panel, perhaps from the end of a casket. Ivory. Under an elaborate architectural canopy are two seated figures. On the left is a man with a falcon on his left wrist and the leg of a bird in his right hand. On his head is a strange broad-rimmed hat. The lady on the right strokes a lap dog which she holds in her left arm.

There has been some doubt as to the genuineness of the panel. On 8th April 1931 M. Longhurst thought it a 19th century work. Its authenticity was also doubted by Eric Maclagan in 1926.
