An article in the 1911 New York Herald stated that Aaron Burr challenged Alexander Hamilton to a duel by posting a letter on a desk similar to this one. In reality, this desk was patented by Stephen Hedges fifty years after the duel--yet it remains known as the Aaron Burr Desk. This miniature version is walnut and converts into a table and chair just like the real one.
It is 1/12 scale, which is the most common scale for dollhouses and dollhouse miniatures. It means that if an object is 12 inches in real life, it is sized down to a one inch as a miniature.
