I don't think that this is authentic, although it's certainly attractive and looks like it may be inspired by a real coffer that actually had Henry and Catherine of Aragon's insignia on it:

(Henry and Catherine's images are on the outside, rather than the inside). The cosmetic brushes and other tools for this box look modern. You might contact the designer (their e-mail is available on the site) and ask him or her what the source was.
