Anglo-Indian Rosewood Campaign Chest of DrawersEarly 19th century
A British colonial campaign chest of drawers made of rosewood. Like the majority of campaign chests, the present example can be split in two parts for ease of transport. It has a rectangular moulded top with egg and dart carving. The upper section two short drawers above one long drawer, the lower section has two long drawers. All of the drawers are flush fitting with the original recessed brass handles and escutcheons. The bottom finished with an egg and dart carved edge resting on four bun feet.
The chest is in good condition and has been lovingly restored and finished to its former glory using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing. The rosewood has a dark shade with a striking grain. The drawer sides and bottom are made of teakwood and attached with fine dovetails to the rosewood drawer front. The backside of the chest has also been made of teakwood.Bombay
