Victorian Iron Bound Teak Military Chest
#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, a timber that is able to stand up to the rigours of the journeys the chest would have to be go through in its life. Teak is a strong hardwood and is also resistant to seawater, this is very useful as it would have been lashed to the deck of ships on its journeys around the world. The lid opens to real an open space for full storage. The iron corners were not only for decorative purposes, but more importantly they were added to give strength and protection while this was being loaded and unloaded from pack horses, camels, wagons, and sailing ships. These chests are fantastic and can be used in many areas of the home, they can be used as great coffee tables. 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.
