The cabinet retains all the original handles.

The secrétaire section is lined in green baize and fitted with eight pigeon-holes and four drawers.

Display cabinets glazed on three sides are extremely rare. A further example with slightly less high-quality veneers, but probably from the same workshop, is illustrated in ‘The Dictionary of English Furniture’ and was exhibited at the English Decorative Art exhibition at Lansdowne House, London, in 1929. A virtually identical secrétaire cabinet, but glazed only at the front, was advertised by Owen Evan-Thomas Ltd. in Apollo magazine in October 1938.
