The frame of the top is boldly chamfered and the chamfering is continued down the ends of the chest. The handles at each end resemble the stays of a farm wagon.

This piece of furniture illustrates the close-knit relationship between Gimson and the Barnsleys in the Pinbury period. The design of the chest is very similar to Sidney Barnsley's chest of 1896, the ends of which are shown in the photograph of the Pinbury workshop.
