A classic Soap Hollow form, retaining traces of original red paint on drawer sides, though obviously altered at some point after its construction. Retains a fairly dark and even patina throughout, with old scuffs, marks and scratches consistent with age and use. Appears to retain the original hinges and till.  One additional brass hinge visible on the interior, likely added later. Key is lacking.
