British Colonial Teakwood Campaign Chest of Drawers

Mid 19th century

A British colonial or Anglo-Indian 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. The chest has been strengthened and simultaneously ornamented by brass mounts on the corners. All of the drawers are flush fitting with the original recessed brass handles and ebony escutcheons. The piece stands on four bun feet.

The cupboard 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.
