Brown and yellow grain painted chest over two drawers with wooden pulls. The front of the chest features two faux painted drawers over two useable drawers with a lock at the top for securing the lid. The lid of the chest is painted with an abstract pattern resembling wood grain, and the sides of the case are painted in imitation of crotched mahogany. The drawer fronts are painted to imitate a highly figured maple with a central elongated oval motif resembling an inlaid panel and cross-banded veneer surrounds. The lid of the chest is composed of a single board with applied square moldings around its front and side edges, and is attached to the case with metal hinges. The front of the case is rabbeted and nailed to the case sides, which are each composed of a single board. The back of the case is composed of three horizontal boards (two of which are replaced) and are nailed into place at the sides. The case sits on straight french feet.
