Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The original walnut stand consists of four ‘Solomonic’ or barley twist legs and an early double ‘y’ cross stretcher set above four restored bun feet. At the top just below the cabinet there is a further long drawer with its original brassware.
The walnut veneers are beautifully figured and book matched both on the doors, between the pairs of drawers and on the top. The drawers are lined with slow-grown tightly grained oak, and have small mitre joints at each corner of the base, another sign of the cabinet’s early date. We can date it to 1675 or even a little earlier, a remarkable survivor from the years after the Restoration of the monarchy and the Great Fire of London.
Height: 53 in (135 cm)

* This is an extremely rare piece of furniture given its early date and small size. It relates to two writing cabinets (or ‘scriptors’) at Ham House dating from the early 1670s, which are of about the same size and in similar form.
