& an article :

 

 

"BRITISH DIMINUTIVE CHESTS OF DRAWERS"

of the 18th Century

  

The modern world believes size and speed to be the measure of value. 

AT&T ads even emphatically state : "Bigger is better!" and "Faster is better!"

In the language of better 18th century chests of drawers,

"bigger" and "faster" could not be further from the objectives.
