The generous overhanging moulded edge top has notched corners above a case which has its drawers symmetrically placed. The case appropriately housing athumb-molded, lipped long drawer above three boxed drawers. The cental drawer has a crisply carved fan with a scalloped outline which contributing to its fine craftsmanship. This is above a tasteful developed arcaded shirt with pendants and central drop. All the above is raised on boldly curved cabriole legs, developing from scroll-like brackets flanking the knees. The sweep from knees and returns is interrupted by a cusp, and the bracket tips are rounded instead of pointed. Together each element is proportionate to the stature of this Fine Quality Lowboy.
