Federal Style McIntyre Cabinet

Federal Style McIntyre Cabinet

 
Who could build a small cabinet like this without adding hidden drawers? Hidden drawers and compartments were typical of 18th and 19th century furniture and were used to store valuables. On this cabinet, a finger catch is released and the back of the gallery drops down to reveal three hidden drawers; the middle one inlaid with the initials of the owner.
