English term or phrase: freedom boxes
View of the ‘Irish Silver’ gallery, showing, on the left, examples of provincial silver. On the right are maces and freedom boxes, made for ceremonial use. - apparently these were presentation boxes given to those citizens who were granted the freedom of a particular city
