An Asian hardwood Cabinet with camphor wood for the secondary timber, probably made as part of a 3 piece campaign chest.
The cabinet has mirrored doors with a gilt moulding and reeded columns to the front with a dental moulding to the top fixed cornice. The interior has 2 shelves that can be adjusted to 5 different positions. The cabinet has brass carrying handles. It's possible it originally sat on a desk but the size would suggest a chest is more likely. Now, it could be used with either as well as being hung by itself.
The quality is as good as you would expect from an early 19th Century Chinese cabinet maker.
