My miniature furniture collection is primarily comprised of doll- and child-size chairs. These chairs can be functional as well as decorative. Miniature furniture is especially easy to display because it lends itself to tabletop vignettes. For example, a group of similar scale chairs placed on a table can hold small vases filled with flowers.
Recently I purchased an antique bentwood highchair. While the chair isn't in perfect condition and is missing the tray, it’s still a great antique example of a doll-size highchair. I wonder if it’s a salesman’s sample because of the amount of work that went into caning the seat, and the more labor-intensive work of bending the wood to construct the chair.
