Crown molding above four graduated thumb-molded drawers; the sides overhanging. The top case is received by a broad, beautifully cut, and finished waist molding of generous proportion; lower-case with single long-drawer above three short-drawers. The case which is raised on rather straight cabriole legs featuring crisp knee-ridges and turned pad feet; the returns were carved and shaped "in-the-round" (single piece of birch). The legs are joined by a triple arcade apron in the taste of the William and Mary period; side aprons feature a subtle cupid's bow cutout. It is interesting that the drawer sides are rived and delicately molded. The wood is a warm pumpkin-brownish pine color with decent patina; originally painted brown as is evidenced by intact full-coverage paint remaining on top-boards.
