The idea for this piece spawned from the portfolio of Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann. Supporting the cabinet are four elegant legs, all of the fuseau a facets type. Eight facets veneered with sawn and book matched Macassar ebony, divided by bone stringing 1 mm wide. The bottoms of the legs are shod with ivory, and the top of each leg is set with an ivory pearl. The cabinet's exterior is veneered in sawn Macassar ebony veneer on both sides, as well as the back. In top of the cabinet, framed in sumptuous curves of the ogee, is a raised rectangular panel; veneered with Amboina burl. It too is decorated with the diamond pattern in bone stringing, as are the two doors of this cabinet. All inlays are 1 mm wide. The interior of the cabinet is veneered with sawn figured mahogany.
