Charming antique miniature bureau chest. It is veneered, as they were in this period with gorgeous burled walnut. It dates from around 1830/1850. Possibly a salesman's sample, to show the skill of a particular workshop in the hopes of selling a larger sized version. Or it may of started life as a spectacular accessory for a French or German doll. The sweet drop drawer pulls are of brass. The burl maple veneer is a rich swirling chocolate brown. It has a slightly bowed front. Each drawer has fine double stringing that gives a herring bone effect on the edges. A true miniature, the dimensions are: 8" wide (bureau top), 7 1/2" tall, and 4 1/2" deep. Perfect scale for a lovely poupee to store her clothes. The veneer is in fine condition. The brass drawer pulls are original. Overall just an exceptional antique dresser. Expect to see these priced in the thousands but not at Cachet Antiques! Layaway is available
