It is of pegged plank construction, with gouged decoration to its edges, and the front is beautifully hand carved with a figure in mediaeval costume. The feet are formed by a pointed arch, deeply chamfered, on both of the side panels. Inside is one large open space and Grimble's carved signature is under the lid.

In overall very good condition.
