Antique miniature faux bamboo cabinet. This handsome cabinet can function as a wardrobe for your dolls or simply as a wonderful display piece. Faux bamboo furniture was all the rage in the late 19th Century. Victorian homes were proud to display all manner of items in this style, based on a cyclical demand for Chinoiserie that placed unrealistic demands on the real bamboo plant that, left to its own devices, would happily take over the garden. Thus, all during the late 18th Century and periodically during the 19th, we see this style of furniture in and out of fashion. There are no marks on this, so I am unable to state where it was made. Mirror is in very good condition, with some light scratches and foxing around the edges. door opens to reveal two useful shelves, and a bottom drawer. The stained, darker wood is a bird's eye maple veneer, and I do not know what the base wood is, nor can I identify what the faux bamboo is carved from. There are three chips to the veneer on the top back edge, and there are two holes where finials or something like it are now missing. No detractions from appearance or function. Measures 20.5 inches tall, 10 inches wide, 5 inches deep.
