Set back from the base, the cabinet has double doors, each with five beveled glass panels, that open to reveal four shelves. The lower section, has three drawers flush fitted with brass handles. The cabinet rests on four short carved legs that flare out at the bottom and terminate in small bun feet.

The drawer sides and bottom are made of teakwood and attached with fine dovetails to the rosewood drawer front. The interior and backside of the cabinet have also been made of teakwood.
