|This example of Renaissance coffering comes from the ceiling of the Sala dell'Udienza, in the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence.|
Some of the earliest forms of coffering are stone examples found in ancient Greek, Islamic, Chinese and Roman structures. One of the most famous examples of Roman coffers is the ceiling of the Pantheon. Coffers were also used in Renaissance architecture.
The word 'coffer' can refer to a strongbox or small chest for holding valuables.
