It is embellished with low-relief cabochons and beveled panels on the upper cabinets and pediment, as well as the lower cupboard. Like all court cupboards, it consists of three pieces and is very similar to a buffet, with short or hidden legs. Up top there is an upper set of cabinets with narrow-paned doors, ornate brass escutcheons, and a central cabinet heavily carved with a romantic pastoral scene. Inside there are adjustable/removable wood shelves the stretch the length of the top section all three cabinet doors open to the same space.
Next, there is the gallery with its wide display space and beautifully turned rails. The bottom half is what would be traditionally considered a "buffet" with its square design, short legs and bun facade. The beveled glass in the upper doors is not original and there are several signs of repair done to the piece over time. There have been new hinges on the bottom doors and the escutcheons n the top doors are also not original.
The piece measures 93" high, 55 1/2" wide, 21 deep, and weighs between 150 -175 lbs. This piece is in good condition for its age. It does show signs of wear to the wood as well as from woodworm for which it has been treated. It has been updates and/or repaired on numerous occasions.
