On the sides, one can recognize the attack of the Château of Love by two knights throwing roses with the help of a catapult while another climbs up a ladder to reach the ladies, as well as the abduction of one of them by a rider, perhaps Lancelot and Queen Guinevere.

These sculpted scenes were intended to recall famous novels in which love, valour and youth were found, subjects often exploited in ivory objects of the time such as mirror valves.
