(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.)
