Antique French Miniature Sample Painted Chest of Drawers circa 1890

This charming example of an antique French miniature chest of drawers circa 1890 was used as a sample from which to order a full size chest for one's home. Fitted with three drawers, a working lock, elevated on bun feet and featuring a charming painted finish this chest is perfect in every way. This is the type of piece a cabinet maker's shop would have had on display in order to assist a client in making choices regarding an actual chest. This is a particularly wonderful example as it combines a number of unique features in order to stimulate a client's imagination as to possibilities. Notice that the sample chest is finished on the sides as well as the top, has working drawers with drawer pulls and an unfinished back as it would be in real life. Made to stand on a tabletop for ease of display this may easily be used as a jewelry chest. Please be sure to enlarge and zoom on the photographs to see the excellent cabinet work and texture of the surface.
