This unusual cabinet belongs to a small group of three sharing a similar design: one of the others, made in walnut, was formerly in the Percival D. Griffiths Collection, and the third, made in mahogany, was formerly in the Moller Collection.

The cabinet has two dummy drawers to each side, a long centre drawer and a hinged fold-down secrétaire section below, all retaining the original ornate brass handles.

The drawer bears inside a paper label printed ‘SOLD BY ORDER OF THE EXECUTORS OF/The Late SIR ERNEST ROYDEN, BART’.
