Description

Victorian officers camphorwood chest
This Large Victorian camphorwood trunk was made circa 1870 to be used by a British officer to transport his uniforms and personal effects around the British Empire.
Made of Camphorwood, a wood that has a beautiful natural perfume. It was especially good for transporting garments as insects avoid this wood and so the Uniforms etc were safe from these when in the Far East and India.
This is brass bound to protect the corners and chest during its rough handling on and off carts, sailing ships, and on various pack animals, as it was travelling on the adventures the Officer would have been enduring in the campaigns of the late 19thc.
Imagine what stories this could tell; it is bound to spark the imagination of young and old as you wonder what perils it had seen.
These make superb, interesting coffee tables as a conversation piece in the middle of a room or can be used as good storage elsewhere in the home.
97cms wide 38ins
47cms deep 18 1/2ins
46cms high 18ins
All Measurements are approximate, whilst we take care in measuring there may at times be a very slight difference.
