British Colonial Teakwood Campaign Chest of DrawersLate 19th century
A British colonial campaign chest of drawers made of teakwood. Like the majority of campaign chests, the present example has iron lift handles on the sides and can be split in two parts for ease of transport. It has a rectangular moulded top. The upper section two short drawers above one long drawer, the lower section has two long drawers. All of the drawers are flush fitting and are fitted with wooden pulls and feature a brass escutcheon. The piece rests on bun feet ending in a peg.
The chest of drawers 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.
