This is quite an extraordinary piece of miniature furniture perfectly scaled for a French Fashion doll. Our French Fashion is admiring her collection of treen, but only the dumb waiter is for sale at this time. One very unique aspect of this dumb waiter is the fact that the two lower shelves actually rotate. The three round shelves are gracefully proportioned and the center post is turned and carved beautifully. The piece stands on a tripod of three cabriole legs ending in pad feet and the patina glows in a warm mahogany hue. We are not sure of its origin but estimate that it dates from the late 19th to early 20th century. It is in perfect condition and truly is a magnificent specimen of master carpentry, possibly made as a maitrise model or apprentice piece. As beautiful and decorative as this is for a French Fashion to display her treasures, this is also a very rare and unique piece of furniture for the miniature collector. It can be displayed anywhere and is certainly a conversation piece.
The approximate measurements are: 12 1/2" tall X 5 1/2" width at the feet X 6" diameter of the lowest shelf X 4" diameter of the top shelf.
