Crafted of solid and veneered mahogany it features a Moorish cornice. The top section has three adjustable shelves and original citron green milk painted interior. Top "drawer" drops and pulls out to reveal a writing desk and with requisite "cubby" holes. The two doors below reveal a storage area with additional shelf.
