This miniature sideboard measures 7" wide, 4" deep and 6 1/4" tall. A nice size for displaying with dolls or as a charming accessory for your country home. Made of solid oak slabs with slotted and nailed construction. The sides and back of the drawer are a lesser wood, probably poplar, and the bottom is cardboard.
A cute piece with functioning drawer and doors that open with small turned wooden knobs. We have had similar pieces before and know that the open slot in the back held a separate back splash that was removable for ease in packing a quantity for distribution.
According to one reference book* these pieces were made in America and at least some of it was sold by Butler Brothers; a wholesaler that distributed them in bulk to retailers. This piece and several other forms were featured in their toy catalog of 1895.
There is a chunk missing and a tight split on the drawer front (see last picture), a piece gone from the back edge of the top panel and the missing back splash or mirror. Otherwise in nice sturdy condition.
