Open, it allows to discover a set of eleven drawers ebony veneer to a decor chiseled flowers, fruits, foliage and volatiles, and framing two gates. The Garden of Eden is represented on the two inner gates. The latter reveal a beautiful theater in veneer of satin, amaranth, ebony, green tinted matter, with set of mirrors.
