The two-door amber cabinet is decorated with ivory reliefs and adorned with brass fittings; it has nine drawers around a central mirrored architectural compartment.

The drawer interiors are as elaborately embellished as the exterior. Made in Danzig (Poland). This work was acquired with assistance from the Wolfson Foundation.
