Indeed these pieces of furniture called "campaign furniture" or marine furniture were made during the 19th century in England for the English army. Marine chest that stands out for its large size and double lock. Which is unusual. But specially for the inscriptions on the chest which are rare. The trunk is in camphor wood. It is an unusual wood that has amazing characteristics. First of all, it has a superb flame. Camphor tree is also known for its smell inside the chests which has the taste of mint.
