Note:

Miniature pieces of furniture in the Netherlands were mostly apprentice pieces or product samples. They usually are smaller than the miniature furnitures made in the Dutch East Indies. It is unlikely the pieces of quite large miniature furniture in the Dutch East Indies had the same function. These were probably made to order for Dutch or Indo-Dutch ladies who collected miniature items as a hobby, in the same way doll’s houses were collected by wealthy women in the Netherlands.
