Miniature Mahogany Chest of Drawers, England, c. 1920
This is an English miniature chest of drawers. According to Genevieve Cummins (Antique Boxes, Inside and Out, 2006) "miniature furniture items are often called apprentice pieces, as they are thought to have been made as proof of prowess, or as a sample, or maybe just to be delightful."
This chest of drawers has four drawers, two side-by-side at the top. Each drawer has a wood turned pull. The chest is of mahogany, which only has a few user marks. The chest measures 8 inches wide, 7 3/4 inches high, and 4 1/4 inches deep.
