A very attractive and most unusual early 19th century
French mahogany miniature escritoire having hinged top
over one frieze drawer raised on original brass ball feet

(This most unusual piece was almost certainly made originally
as a travelling salesman's sample. It would have been
constructed as a scale replica of the full size versions the
workshop was producing at the time and dispatched in the
horse and cart with the salesman for a few months and used
to take orders for full size versions from.)
