The third drawer down opens to reveal a secretaire compartment with a green baize writing surface in front of two birds eye maple fronted mahogany lined drawers fitted with mahogany knob handles. Above these are four pigeon holes with a birds eye maple shaped apron.
To each side of the drawers is a pilaster with a carved foliate scroll capital, the right hand side one hinged and fitted with a lock and key to lock all six drawers.
The whole is raised on a plinth base, is a pleasing colour and in good condition retaining a patination.
