Including the sword and mace (and an aggregate of candied fruit), twenty-four objects are displayed on the benches at Urbino. Elsewhere we find a dislocated box-drawer with the letters “CO” (containing two recorders), a jingle ring, a lute, three recorders, two pears, a container of candied fruits (with two spoons), a clavichord, a shin-guard and the golden spur of the Gonfaloniere (Knight of the Pope), a cushion, one waisted fiddle with a comb-bridge, another lute (upside-down), and three books, two of whose pages are “ruffled” as if by a nearby draft.
