Resting on turned bun feet and supported by a later ebonised stand with four turned, champhered and tapered legs joined by an H stretcher.

The central panel opening to reveal two short above two long drawers. When the two short drawers are removed, the divider slides out to reveal a hidden narrow horizontal drawer at the back. The balustrade above the central panel and the frieze below it are also hidden drawers.
