Three oak shelves, with sides shaped at the bottom and a simple cornice above.

The shelf is faced with grooved mouldings, and the back is solid, constructed of thin pine boards cut out of square by its maker and beaded on the front side.

One of these boards appears to be a replacement.

Width: 20-1/2“; Height: 25-1/2“; Depth of shelves: 6-1/2“
