Under the table frieze another slide reveals a board veneered for chess, which removes and slides into the top surface of the table. There is a further slide with a silked workbox for needlework accessories.The table is raised on lyre end supports upon a stepped oblong platform base and four swept legs with cast gilded acanthus leaf mounts and terminating in gilded hairy paw feet and castors.
