A 19th century campaign chest with two short and three long drawers, furnished with original brass flush handles and carrying handles to the sides.
Campaign or Military furniture was popular in the 19th and 20th centuries, when military campaigns took place during the expansion of the British Empire. British officers of high social standing would carry the pieces around with them for home comforts and storage, piecing them back together for use. Camphor wood, teak and mahogany were commonly used alongside brass metalwork.
Currently on display in our London Collection, at The Talisman Building.
