The frieze is relief carved in an intertwining grapes and vines design which is repeated at the base. The cabinet has double doors with eight beveled glass panels within a rosewood frame; they open to reveal three teakwood shelves. Along the sides of the doors turned pillars with relief carved grapes and vines. The carved base has a gadrooned border and rests on four reeded bun feet.
