A fine quality two-drawer cabinet veneered in Masur birch, imported from the Baltic region. It is decorated with borders of miniature parquetry, surrounding early examples of tessellated mosaic on the doors and sides of the cabinet. The centre of the lid is inlaid with a mosaic of a butterfly, suggesting a date in the late 1830’s, when it is thought that James Burrows first introduced mosaics of birds, butterflies and dogs to Tunbridge Ware.

The interior of the cabinet is fitted with two deep un-lined drawers with bands of miniature parquetry decoration.
The cabinet stands on stickware feet.
