The rectangular top veneered with padouk and kingwood crossbandings, bordered by inlaid flowers, opening to reveal the original countersunk baize lined interior. The base with panelled frieze inlaid with floral panels and supported by four, rosewood, fluted turned legs ending in toupie feet. The rear legs pulling out to reveal card drawer and support for top. Original gilding to mounts.
