It is made from beautiful Kingwood and has the most wonderful parquetry decoration.
There are a pair of doors over two dummy drawers and these are over two full width drawers. It has been fitted with rails to hang clothes, but this cabinet also would make an excellent tv, hi fi, or drinks cabinet.
The locks and keys are all original.
It is in original untouched condition.
In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation of condition.

is a classic furniture wood, almost exclusively used for inlays on very fine furniture. Occasionally it is used in the solid for small items and turned work, including parts of billiard cues, e.g., those made by John Parris. It is brownish-purple with many fine darker stripes and occasional irregular swirls. Occasionally it contains pale streaks of a similar colour to sapwood.
The wood is very dense and hard and can be brought to a spectacular finish. it turns well but due to its density and hardness can be difficult to work with hand tools. It also has a tendency to blunt the tools due to its abrasive properties.
