The cabinet features two rows of drawers (side by side drawers at the top over a large drawer underneath), both embellished with ornate bronze handles and matching escutcheons. The cabinet has a scalloped apron decorated with a carved floral and foliage motif in the center, and both sides are dressed with raised panels.
