Description

A Late Regency Mahogany Miniature Chest Of
Small Proportions Having Well Figured Top Over
Two Short And Two Long Drawers Retaining
Original Wooden Knobs And Original
Turned Feet
(Often much debate is had as to whether miniature furniture was
made as an apprentice piece, which is when a craftsmen who is looking
for a job at a workshop would create something to showcase
their talents, or whether it was made as a travelling salesmans
sample piece, which is when a few articles were made as
scale models in advance of a road trip during which the salesman
would travel the country showing prospective clients
the kind of items they could produce back at the workshop and
take orders from. It's quite difficult to distinguish whether this
particular miniature chest would have been made as an
apprentice piece, or a sample piece, however either way
it is most attractive, very good quality, constructed from highly
figured mahogany and an extremely sweet size. It retains both
its original handles and its original feet, plus fully functioning
locks with working key.)
