Rectangular and upright. Oak, overlaid with light metal and inlaid with tortoise-shell and brass in scroll and foliate panels with crowned cyphers of conjoined CE and ML over eagles in six top ones. Two glazed doors with scalloped cross pieces. Two shelves inside screwed through back. Base with wood painted black on five legs with flat stretchers and turned pad feet. Top overhang molding slightly with concave molding.
The double cypher appears to be CE with ML.
The number 10 is ingrained in the wood of the proper right door panel.
