Seaweed marquetry cabinet on chest in the style of Gerrit Jensen. Cushion-shaped drawer below top moulding with three oval panels of marquetry. Two cupboard doors open to reveal two drawers above and below a triple stack of four drawers (each with marquetry oval and foliate border) either side of a small cupboard with quatrefoil marquetry motif. The small cupboard door opens to reveal a dark wood lined space with four shallow drawers at the back. The main doors inside have quatrefoil, and lobed infil to edges and corners. Outside similar, but smaller as set within foliate frame. The chest of drawers below has two short and two long drawers, with ovals and foliate borders as before. Replacement bun feet. The carcase is pine, the drawers are lined with oak.
