Georgian Mahogany 18th Century Miniature Chest of Drawers
A charming late 18th century mahogany miniature chest having three long drawers with brass handles raised on elegant splayed feet (Much discussion is had over the original purpose of almost all miniature furniture and the simple answer is that we will probably never know what the majority of pieces original intended function was. The two main uses were of course pieces which were made as travelling salesman's sample pieces, which is where 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, or alternatively pieces which were produced by apprentices attempting to showcase their skills and gain employment at the cabinet making workshop of their choosing.)
