This oak cabinet is of rectangular form surmounted by a triangular pediment enclosing a small central drawer, above two doors which open to reveal four short and six longer drawers arranged around a central cupboard.  The whole, as described by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, is painted black and ‘mordant gilded, silvered and varnished’ with landscapes and figures within wide borders profusely painted with scrolling vegetation.  The principal panels on the doors, top and sides, show Dutch figures and animals of the hunt in landscapes set before fortified towns with mountainous landscapes behind, all beneath a sky of stylized cloud scrolls, the interior of the drawers painted red.
