The reeded top sides are raised on attractively turned supports and have a generously proportioned turned knob to each corner. The interior is divided into two sections for one's books. Below is a full width mahogany lined drawer fitted with rosewood knob handles.
The whole is raised on well carved bun feet, fitted with brass castors, is in good condition, has a most attractive rich colour and retains a patination.
