(There is often a debate over whether miniature furniture was made
as an apprentice piece, which is when somebody who is looking
for a job in a workshop would create something to showcase
their talents, or whether it was made as a travelling salesman
sample piece, which is when a few articles were made as
scale models in advance of a road trip on which the salesman
would travel the country showing prospective clients
the kind of items they could produce back at the workshop and
take orders from. This particular piece was almost certainly made
as a travelling salesman sample piece due it being most unusual
to find a miniature side table and also the fact it is most unlikely
that an apprentice would be asked, or think, to make one of these
as opposed to making a normal miniature chest of drawers.),
