Wonderful homemade miniature Empire Style Chest of Drawers in original red paint. Measures 11 1/2" to top of backsplash and 4 3/4" at deepest. Has three drawers with knobs and a secret drawer above them. Across the top are three smaller drawers, two of which have knobs. The center one was made without knobs to mirror the secret drawer below. A hole was made in the back to open the small center drawer. Two old wood supports on the back strengthen a crack. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1860.
