A delightful regency period mahogany miniature chest having two short and three long drawers standing on original splay feet

There is often a debate over whether miniature furniture was made as an apprentice piece, which is where somebody who is looking for a job in a workshop would create something to showcase their talents, or whether it was made as a travelling salesman sample piece, 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.
