A double domed walnut bureau bookcase with a honey colored patin and two mirrors. The bottom half has multiple drawers and a fall front.
The interior is fitted with candle slides, pigeon holes, compartments for folios and a secret well. This is not the only secret compartment that can be found. Behind the secret well is an extra hidden compartment and next to the small door above the well are two hidden drawers that look like they are solid, but are instead hollowed out. The center door of the interior is flanked by two columns topped with two gilt wood statues of sages in classical robes holding a torch and a pointer.
