    Copied from an armour chest, 14th Century in the Burrell Collection, Glasgow City Museums. Suitable for larger or heavy chests, the loop between the ring and staple allows the chest to be transported by means of a pole inserted into the ring, and carried by 2 people. Smaller chests would have a fixture in each end; larger chests would have 2 on each side and be carried like a litter.
