h. 36", w. 50", d. 24-3/4"


In very good polished and restored condition. The piece appears to be French-polished. The ebonizing and gilt has been re-touched. The case is solid and tight. The top exhibits shrinkage, including a filled shrinkage crack. There is a similar crack on one side of the case. Locks are present; key is not. Drawers slide freely. The drawers do not show evidence of drillings for any other pulls in the past.
