Victorian Brass Bound Campaign Trunk
Here we have this Victorian trunk that would have been used by a British officer to transport his uniforms and valuables around the Empire. This chest is made of teak which has the character of walnut, a timber that is able to stand up to the rigours of the journeys the chest would have to be put through. It is also resistant to seawater, which was important as it would have been lashed to the deck of ships on its journeys as well as an array of beasts of burden as it was carted around the world. The flush brass corners were not only for decorative purposes, but more importantly they were inset to give strength and protection while this was being loaded and unloaded from pack horses, camels, wagons, and ships. The corners and central plaque have been screwed in rather than the cheaper option of being nailed. To each end there is the original swing carrying handle These chests are fantastic and can be used in many areas of the home. Imagine the conversations that will be struck up with your family and friends as you contemplate the history and adventures this would have been through. It was made at a time when there were many conflicts in the East, and the officer would need this very portable and strong chest to carry his personal items as well as his uniforms on the many different locations and conflicts he was posted to. Imagine how great it will be owning this and the pleasure it will bring as family and friends speculate the adventures it has been through in its life.
