Both sides of the furniture are plated with the same mahogany sheet much less "flamed" than the facade. The tray is covered with a similar mahogany vein at the sides, it is finely molded on its lower edge. The interior theatre is plated on its songs and facades of thick mahogany veneer, small refinement the lock entrance of the small door is made of debony veneer cut in the form of a shield.
The 2 back feet are finished with bronze hooves, the 2 front feet are carved oak, patinated black for the set except for the foliage that is golden, this finish is the original one. It is not common to find furniture combining claws and columns. While the design brings us closer to beautiful Parisian productions, some points differ, the plateau which is very original is made of wood, plated with mahogany, which is unusual, also the frame is not common if the claw feet are spread at the beginning of the nineteenth century on the secretaries, the model slender as on our model is sometimes found on furniture of molitor, but also in provincial cabinetmaker as short, cabinetist Dijonnais who produced empire furniture whose oak frame was plated with mahogany.The bronze entrances and handles that lon finds on the front of the doors, the lower and the upper drawer and which are from the empire period are not the original one, in place of each lock entrance there is an ebony shield embedded in the mahogany veneer as for the small door of the theatre, so this furniture was born of the most sober with just the bronze rings of the columns. The surface of the leather is also unusual for a Parisian furniture, it is usually much larger, covering the major part of the slaughter. The interior layout is decorated with columns whose base and capital are in gold repelled brass, this same material is used for small lion-head macaroons laid in applique. Last detail at the level of the construction, the rear paneling of the furniture consists of large oak board arranged vertically, this type of assembly does not correspond to the Parisian furniture of this period. On the back of the piece of furniture there is an old label, which remains almost illegible, but can still be read "den haag" meaning the city of the Haye in the lower country. This piece of furniture is in a very good condition of preservation, however there is an old horizontal slot on the lower side and on the right door, also small small slots on the left side, it is noted that the door lock is posterior, the cabinet is locked, the mahogany colors are very beautiful, no discoloration, the varnish is impeccable.
