Description
A stunning military campaign chest made from beautifully figured teak and dating from c1870. It has the original recessed pull handles to the drawers, and lifting handles at each end. The chest splits into two sections. This chest of drawers is (in my opinion) absolutely gorgeous - I love the design of campaign furniture, where function and manoeuvrability was paramount, but never detracted from the aesthetic appeal of an item. The timber used for the drawer fronts especially has lovely grain, and has developed a great patina over the years. The chest splits into two sections to make moving it about easier. It is very well made, with fine dovetails to the drawers, turned bun feet, and oak drawers sides. The drawer handles are original. The lifting handles on the sides are original on the left hand side (as you are facing it) but we had to source new ones for the right hand side as the original handles had both broken. The replacements are a very close match to the originals, as you can see from the photos. The chest is in good condition, with some surface wear (scratches and indentations, and a couple of cup rings on the top) in accordance with age. The second drawer down doesn’t shut entirely flush - it appears to bow out slightly in the centre - but this is not very noticeable. A couple of the drawer handles are ever so slightly misshapen and are a little stiff to close, but fully functional. This is an antique item and as such may have signs of wear in accordance with its age. Anything that we think is of note will have been mentioned above, but please study the photos carefully to satisfy yourself as to its condition as it is not possible to list every little mark or flaw. We are happy to provide high resolution photographs or videos if required, and answer any questions you may have - just get in touch!
