I'm not so sure that there are many or any surviving cases. A possible
source would be:

Crane, Fredrick. _Extant Medieval Musical Instruments: A Provisional
Catalogue by Types_. University of Iowa Press, 1972.  ISBN
87745-022-6.

But it would be luck if he says anything about cases, either about
their absense or presence.

Good luck!
