About the object

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.)
