The entire case is adorned with figured mahogany veneer, quarter fan inlay patterns surrounded by banding and line inlay.

Condition Report: The top is one piece of mahogany. There is a triangular patch on the left side possibly due to a large shrinkage crack. Both sides of the case have had shrinkage cracks filled with strips of wood. There is restoration to the hinged area on the lower left side door where it meets the leg. Minor areas of veneer banding along the top and around the drawer face panels restored, most of which have been re-glued and only a few replaced. One section, 2 ½” long, of inlay on the lower edge of the case, on the right side is restored. Brasses and center lock are original, locks on the doors are replaced. Refinished.
