Large Victorian Camphor Wood Trunk

REF: LA317657
Large Victorian camphorwood trunk This Large Victorian camphorwood trunk was made circa 1890 to be used by a British officer to transport his uniforms and personal effects around the British Empire. It is exceptional example of one of these beautiful chests. Made of Camphorwood, a wood that has a beautiful natural perfume. It was especially good for transporting garments as insects avoid this wood and so the Uniforms etc were safe from these when in the Far East and India. This is brass bound to protect the corners and chest during its rough handling on and off carts, sailing ships, and on various pack animals, as it was travelling on the adventures the Officer would have been enduring. Imagine what stories this could tell; it is bound to spark the imagination of young and old as you wonder what perils it had seen. 112cms wide 44ins 56cms deep 22ins 58.5cms high 23 All Measurements are approximate, whilst we take care in measuring there may at times be a very slight difference.
