Circa 1810 EXCEPTIONAL NAPOLEONIC PRISONER OF WAR MINIATURE CARVED FURNITURE SET
This is a truly exceptional quality piece which would not be out of place in any World Renown Museum!
Comprising of an intricately carved table with 2 intricately carved matching Chairs.
This period bone carved miniature set dates to the very early 19th Century period (Circa 1805-1910) and was made by a Napoleonic Prisoner of War (1803-1815)
The tiny, intricately and perfectly carved detailing throughout each piece is truly phenomenal, and it is very clear to see from the level of perfection, that this poor prisoner was incarcerated with a very long time on their hands!
The rectangular table has a banded surface border, which is flanked in the centre with an outstandingly carved pierced panel, the four-sided table aprons of which have conforming intricately carved pierced panels.
The whole sits on four beautiful hexagon shaped turned tapering legs, united in the centre by a truly magnificently shaped & carved cross stretcher, and terminating in a tall, turned rising finial.
Each high-back chair has a finely pierce-carved rear back panel, enclosed by a decoratively shaped back-rail with turned upright supports, leading down to a fine pierce-carved seat base, and terminating in beautifully turned & tapering legs.
It beggars belief that any human being can produce and carve such a detailed, quality miniature piece in the first place, but add to poor prisoner conditions and the lack of any real tools to do the job, and then, what we have is a master cabinet maker!
The new owner will be absolutely thrilled with this outstanding set, it is not to be repeated.
