The desk retains the original blind-tooled leather insert and has replaced ornate swan-neck brass handles. Every alternate drawer in the frieze is a dummy drawer; one end drawer is fitted out with compartments and retains a paper label from the Kent Gallery Ltd., London. Each pedestal has three doors; the end doors each reveal a further three graduated drawers, which retain the original swan-neck handles.

There are very few 18th century examples of oval pedestal desks in existence.
