In two parts. The plank top is in three sections and faced with a solid, moulded edge. The front is fitted with two short drawers above two long drawers which are all decorated with applied, geometric mouldings. There is a secret drawer between the top, short drawers. The brasses and escutcheons are all replaced, and the drawers are lined in oak with some repairs and replacements. The stand is fitted with a shallow drawer. It has a shaped apron and stands on high, turned feet. Some repairs and supports added to strengthen the carcass. Excellent original colour and patina. English, fourth quarter of the 17th century.
