The interior of the desk has been newly lined with traditional top-quality cotton green baize. Therefore, the baize is in excellent clean condition.

The drawers are in good working order; they are clean inside and close flush to the frame. The chest is decorated with reeded canted corners and boast decorative cross-banding to the sides. The chest stands on traditional Georgian style bracket feet.
