Two short drawers and three long drawers of graduated depth below the desk. Solid oak top, fall and sides, note the inlaid ebony and birch wheel detail on the front of the fall, also repeated inside. Mahogany crossbanded edge to the fall and drawer fronts. Original and very elegant Georgian brass handles and original bracket feet front and rear.
