This trinket cabinet from the 1830's unusually has a background of well-figured bird’s eye maple, a veneer most frequently found on Tunbridge Ware after 1860.

The exterior of the cabinet is liberally decorated with panels of miniature parquetry, star shaped medallions and a diamond shaped panel of perspective cubes to the lid, all of which contrast splendidly with the maple veneer. The applied gadrooned mouldings, similar to those found on furniture of the William IV period, add to the decorative finish.

The cabinet opens to reveal four graduated drawers, re-lined in red silk. Each drawer is inlaid with different parquetry borders and has star decorated stickware knobs. The inlay to the interior of the doors echoes that on the exterior with panels shaped like arch-topped windows.
