Square basin stand with three shelves and a single drawer on four straight legs. The legs are square below the upper shelf and are chamfered on their interior edge below the drawer. The upper shelf has a large circular cut-out at center and two smaller circular cut-outs in the rear corners. The upper shelf is framed by four solid, flat-arched rails. The middle shelf has round edges and sits atop three solid rails and the drawer blade; the bottom edges of the three rails and blade below the drawer are cut out with astragal ends. The drawer front features scratch-beaded edges and a brass pull. The lower, shaped shelf is crossed boards half-lapped at center and to four supports that are set into the legs.
