The casework is made from sinker cypress finished in button-lac shellac and wax. The veneer banding is hand cut from a single timber. The panels are hand painted with oil and trimmed in gold leaf.  The wall paper in the back of the case is hand crafted. The ceiling of the case is dark green boulle, polished by hand to a soft luster.  The shelf standards are welded iron, the shelving is glass. The escutcheon pattern is carved in boxwood and cast in brass.
