Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Kasten op lage poten die in het victoriaanse tijdperk populair waren. De kast is verticaal in tweeën gedeeld, waarbij het ene deel bestaat uit planken met een houten of glazen deur ervoor, bedoeld voor boeken, borden of curiosa, en het andere deel uit een secretaire, een kabinet of een combinatie van een spiegel, laden en een neerklapbaar tafelblad. Te onderscheiden van chifforobes: kasten die ook verticaal in tweeën zijn gedeeld, maar die meestal in slaapkamers worden gebruikt, met een smal gedeelte voor kleren aan de ene kant en laden en een spiegel aan de andere kant.
