(There is often debate as to the original purpose regarding
many items of miniature furniture, with some people believing
them to be “apprentice pieces”, which was when an aspiring
craftsmen who was seeking work at an established cabinet making
workshop would create something to showcase his talents, but
many others believing that they were made as “salesman’s sample
pieces” which was when scale models of a workshops output
were made in advance of a road trip, during which the salesman
use these models to present to prospective clients and take orders
based on. These miniature centre tables come in many different
shapes, sizes, qualities and designs and were nearly always
created as salesman’s sample pieces, ie scale models of bigger
versions. This particular one has been constructed from excellent
quality and superbly figured mahogany and has elaborate carved
decoration which really adds to the elegance of the piece.)
