Description Walnut "knockdown" wardbrobe. Has an ogee cornice above a pair of doors and two drawers at the bottom. The knobs to open the wardrobe doors and drawers are mushroom-shaped, and is a brass keyhole below each doorknob.

Inside the wardrobe there are three slats on the proper right side and one on the top of the proper left side, which suggests that the wardrobe once had shelves or accomdations for shelving. There is a wooden rod that rests on wooden supports attached to either side of the interior; the wood looks relatively new in comparison with the rest of the interior.
Provenance This wardrobe originally "belonged to the donor's sister, Mrs. Heirman, a schoolmate and friend of Athol Estes [...] the wardrobe was bought at Ditlinger's Furniture Store (11). -Black and white marbleized composition book.
