The press was crafted in the Monticello joiner's shop, and the nails were made in Monticello's own nailery. The press has two paneled doors, each with two recessed panels. The moldings on the right hand door (the left is a replacement) and the double scratch beading on the mahogany shelves precisely duplicate those on Septimia Randolph's small cabinet.| Thomas Jefferson; by descent to Septimia Randolph Meikleham; by descent to Mrs. Henry P. Meikleham; by bequest to the Thomas Jefferson Foundation in 1942.
