About the object

A Mid 19th Century Teak Military Campaign Chest Of
Most Unusual Small Proportions Having Well Figured
Top Over Four Graduated Drawers Retaining Original
Flush Fitted Brass Handles And Original Brass Bound 
Decoration Raised On Original Turned Feet

(Military campaign chests as the name suggests were originally made
for easy transportation around the battlefield. A feature specific to this 
purpose is the brass bound decoration designed to ensure there are 
as few bits "poking out" which are likely to snag during movement as
possible. This example is most unusual in terms of the fact it is much 
narrower than normal and therefore would suit a variety of different 
spaces. A functional, practical and elegant piece that is very much 
still fit for it's original purpose.)

Circa 1860
