A finely carved walnut gallery forms the upper end.

Original fittings and locks, original state of preservation, wonderful patina, lined with ivory-colored moirée on the inside.
The typical tectonic basic elements of Louis Seize find their unsurpassed charisma in precision and beauty in this furniture - the coin decoration, the cord frieze, the inlays in correspondence with the fine, original fire-gilded fittings - a work of art!
