(There is often a debate over whether miniature furniture was made
as an apprentice piece, which is where 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 where 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.)
