Anglo-Indian Teakwood Campaign Chest of Drawers

Mid 19th century

SGD 4,800

A British colonial campaign chest of drawers made of teakwood.  Like the majority of campaign chests, the present example has brass lift handles on the sides and can be split in two parts for ease of transport. The top section has two small drawers over one  long drawer. The bottom part with two long drawers. All of the drawers are flush fitting with the original recessed brass handles and a rosewood keyhole. The piece stands on a plinth 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.

Campaign or “knock down” furniture was portable military furniture and used by British officers when they set out for a campaign in India. However, because campaign furniture was extremely versatile, it also appealed to home owners who appreciated its elegance, strength and ease of storage.
