This so called strong box was a type of traveling chest and is presumably French or Flemish. However, these types of boxes were more common in England than anywhere else where they were fabricated between 1660 and 1720. The earliest proof of an existing strong box has been found on the inventory list of Edward Traherne, a renowned joiner and cabinet-maker who died in London in 1675.
This strong box is decorated with olive-wood and rosewood veneer and ornamenten with brass fittings shaped in leaf motifs.  
ca. 1700
