Regency Mahogany and Satinwood Miniature Chest of Drawers (England, circa 1820)

£2,500.00

A charming regency period 19th century miniature
chest, veneered in mahogany, satinwood & field maple,
having delightfully figured and inlaid top over two short
and three long drawers with replacement brass knobs
raised on elegant splay bracket feet with shaped apron

(Often there debate over 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 salesman
sample piece, which is when a few articles were made as
scale models in advance of a road trip on 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
quite unusual in that it doesn’t really appear to fit either of the
usual purposes, as it is far too good quality for an apprentice to
have made, but the combination of woods and design is not
something we have really seen full size counterparts to. We actually
wonder whether it was made as a sample piece for the veneers
which the workshop had available at that particular time allowing
the customer a visual reference of how the item they had just ordered
would look in a variety of different finishes).
