The chest of drawers has a burr yew-wood top with a herringbone inlaid border and a further herringbone diamond to the centre of the top. On the sides the herringbone is repeated as a border and this time with a circle to the centre. The front of the chest has three short drawers above four graduated long drawers, each inlaid with herring-bone and retaining their original handles and escutcheons. Standing on original bracket feet.

The chest benefits from being veneered in the most highly figured yew-wood which has faded to a golden colour and developed a rich patination.
