Miniature set of drawers

This is a small set of drawers that were passed down through Tommi's family. It was made by Tommi's great-great-grandad, TW Shaw, in World War One. The drawers were sent by Mr Shaw with a letter addressed to his brother. They were made by him in the camp in France to entertain himself whilst there was nothing else to do. They are made from varnished wood and are still in amazing condition. They are surprisingly only 30cm tall !
