Description:
This is a fine quality antique English Regency colonial teak and brass military campaign two-part chest of drawers, with rare small proportions, circa 1830, in excellent original condition. Constructed of solid teak with a single piece top, it features the original recessed shaped brass drop handles, with brass corner brackets and further brass strap-work. The brass corner brackets and brass straps were used to protect the chest whilst in transit during campaigns. The chest also boasts the original steel side carrying handles. The drawers incorporate fine reed moulding to the drawer perimeters. The drawers are constructed of solid teak with hand-dovetailed drawer linings and the piece features its original teak backboards. The drawers are in good working order, they are clean inside and close flush to the frame. The drawers also benefit from the original working lever locks (with working key). The chest stands on its original bracket feet. The chest splits into two sections for easy transportation. Chests that were constructed in the colonies, such as this one, were usually constructed of solid teak. The chest benefits from a rich brown teak colour, with a wonderful grain configuration to the front, sides and top.

Condition Report:
This military chest is in excellent original condition. There are nominal old use marks to the leading edges, top and corners but nothing significant considering the age of the item (see photos). The chest features the original brass inset drop handles and steel side carrying handles. All the hand dovetailed drawers close flush to the frame. The drawers feature the original working lever locks (with working key). The chest retains its original bracket feet and original backboards. As the chest retains its original patination, it benefits from a lovely mellow colour and a wonderful grain configuration to the top, front and sides. This item is well made, solid in joint and ready to use.
