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.

This particular miniature chest of drawers is probably the latter
and would have been made as a sample piece. The construction
is exquisite and the attention to tiny detail phenomenal in all honesty.

A really quite charming piece of antique miniature furniture which is in
good condition and ready to be placed into the home immediately.

It is also super quality and unusual being constructed from burr oak
which has taken on an exceptional rich colour and patina
over the years of its life.

The work that would have gone into constructing this with all of its
fine details would actually have been more of a challenge and taken a
more skilled craftsmen than its full size counterparts would have done.

Circa 1830.
