This large, antique linen press cabinet was fashioned in two parts, retaining the original side handles. It features a small, gadrooned cornice over a broad, gadrooned border with foliate blocks at the corners. The double doors on top have mirror fronts and open to two shelves with gallery fronts. The bottom doors display central medallions and sunburst patterns, originally designed to emulate gathered fabric.
