Empty Swiss Single Case


This Swiss case configuration is one that is in use at the Ecomusée Voltaire, Geneva in 2004. The case measures 90cm x 59cm. Although referred to as a Parisienne case, it is not the same as the more normal Swiss Parisienne or the French Parisienne case. It has considerably more sub-divided boxes, and has rows of 8 (or 16) boxes in the upper case section, rather than rows of seven. The lower case section is similar to, but not quite the same as, the French Single shown by Hostettler, which does not have quite so many sub-divided boxes.
