A small oak spice cabinet with seven interior drawers. Its joined door is attractively decorated with applied geometric mouldings and split spindles. The chest is supported by another applied moulding and four turned feet.

Inside are seven drawers, each with a ring pull. The interior of the shallow top drawer is partitioned into six divisions.

The back is a single riven oak board. There is some restoration to the interior parts of some drawers, and the old wooden pulls have been replaced.
