British Colonial Teakwood Campaign Chest of DrawersLate 19th century
An antique campaign chest of drawers made of teakwood with a nice overhanging top with rounded corners. Like the majority of campaign chests, the present can be split in two parts for ease of transport. 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. At the front, on either side of the drawers, a nice turned pilaster. The piece rests 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.
