Furthermore, the drawers are oak lined and hand dovetailed. The drawer fronts exhibit moulded edges, with walnut cross banding, as well as fine feather banding. The top section of the chest boasts elegant canted reeded corners. The top section terminates at the base of the intersection between the two chests, where a further horizontal moulding separates the two chests. The top chest is smaller than the base chest, which consists of a brushing slide, above three drawers.
