The insides of the doors are similarly inlaid and reveal an arrangement of eleven oyster veneered drawers around a central geometrically inlaid door which opens to reveal five further small drawers. The base is fitted with two half and two full width geometrically inlaid drawers and the whole is raised on bun feet. The sides are also geometrically inlaid and crossbanded. The roundels to the front are all crossbanded as are the doors and drawers.
