One veneered top has been reinstated. Some brass swan-neck handles are
18th century replacements.

The unusual Gothic trefoil corners as well as the crossgrain moulded plinth correspond to the work of the Wakefield firm of Wright and Elwick.
The design, though simplified, relates to a drawing by Chippendale for a
French commode.
