This unique sandook had painted square panels with geometric carvings on them. Metal strips that were braced with nails on the horizontal panel members of the facade further added aesthetic appeal to the furniture. It had a large opening in the front which enabled it to be accessed entirely. On opening, it had a shelf in the centre.
