Decorative, hand forged hinges lift to expose a compartment of drawers–2 shallow (backless) top drawers, 3 deeper drawers, and a shallow opening at the base to allow for lengthier paper storage.
The inside of one of the top shallow drawers bears the date and inscription (possibly of an owner): “Feb’Y. 13/1887 G. Russell.”
The lid is covered with a treated burlap-like cloth, and measures 9-3/4″ x 12 7/8″. The overall dimensions are 7-1/2″ at its greatest height and 5″ at its lowest; approximately 8 3/4″ deep and 11 7/8″ wide.
