A fine quality Anglo-Indian Victorian teak and brass military campaign chest of drawers, with an unusual drawer configuration, circa 1860, in excellent condition. Constructed of solid teak with a single piece top, it retains the original recessed shaped brass handles, with brass corner brackets and additional brass strap-work. Boasting a single piece top and 11 drawers, the drawer fronts are decorated with diamond shaped inset ebonised key escutcheons with fine scribe moulding to the drawer perimeters. The brass corner brackets and brass straps were used to protect the chest whilst in transit during campaigns. The drawers are constructed of solid teak with hand-dovetailed drawer linings and the campaign chest retains 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 working lever locks (with working key). The chest stands on later turned feet, which can be removed by unscrewing. This is a single piece campaign chest. 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 stunning grain configuration to the front and sides, having been cleaned and French polished in in our workshop.

This item would look superb in a variety of rooms, especially the bedroom. This campaign chest of drawers would certainly grace any home. So dont miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.
