This Belgian lay matches the Hoogen Tekst Romein case (VV 2,6 R47-O) (undated, but probably pre 1876) in the Plantin-Moretus Museum in 1998. The companion Upper case is Hoogen Tekst Boven.

The | box represents the long s box. The empty case is Hoogen Tekst Romein. Note that there are effectively 3 rows of boxes, unlike U.K. and U.S. cases, which have 3½ rows. The case measures 33½ x 13¾ inches overall.

There are several other styles of Onder Kasse on view in the Plantin Museum, eg Middelbarr, Klein Canon, Laagen Ascendonica, Klein Romein, Kapitalen, Laagen Tekst.
