This box is a great rarity as very few Hudson River Valley document boxes were made and even fewer survive.  The Dutch, unlike the English, proudly displayed their family Bibles on tables or chests in their homes. Therefore, the need for a box to store the Bible was unnecessary.  This box is also notable for the detailed chip, punch, and compass decorative treatment on its corners, along with the use of applied exotic cedar and cedrela moldings and guilloche carved base molding.
