The body incorporating 16 curved apertures with arched facades around all four sides, for holding glasses, with a moulded panel below and flanked either end by a narrow gothic panel. Raised on a bold rectangular pedestal with moulded fluted corners on a platform base with projecting square corners and a fine moulded edge, concealing the original large steel castors.
