The doors of the top panels are in well selected figured mahogany cross-banded and with arched drop corners. Above the doors is the flared cornice with a finely carved Greek key pattern design running around.
The base section consists of a chest of drawers, with a pair of small drawers across the top and a further pair of full width graduated drawers below. It has the unusual banding that drops down in a semi-circle below each of the escutcheons. The drawers are lined in fine oak.
