At the top there is a flap with lock (missing key) with various compartments inside it and two side containers. The drawers have small handles and knobs in chiselled gilt bronze, while the overlooking corners are decorated with moulded bronze leaf. Of note are the fine porcelain inserts decorated with floral motifs. Bracket feet.
