Additional two small drawers can be found on the outsides. The upper section impresses with seven drawers and center door that houses a storage room divided in two compartments. Inside this you will also find the two bolts which lock all drawers on each side with only one move. Beautiful brass fittings finalize the gorgeous look of this nearly 250 year old masterpiece.
