Wonderful wooden box painted and gilded with the Sacred Heart in relief

Description
Wonderful wooden box painted and gilded with the Sacred Heart in relief
In good condition Italy, mid-18th century

Wonderful box in carved, painted and gilded wood, from the mid-18th century.
The carved decorations, which run along the sides, depict curled scrolls, with a Sacred Heart in the centre of the front.
If you open it, you can immediately see an elegant stylised flower painted inside the lid.
The decorations need to be restored but the structure is solid.
The top lid is light blue and was probably repainted. I’m not sure about the originality of this colour.
The dimensions are: length 33 cm, depth 20 cm, height 10 cm.
Given the decoration with Sacred Heart, the item had probably an ancient ecclesiastical use.
It will be professionally packaged and shipped.
