About this item

Antique Military Campaign Chest of Drawers Teak Victorian circa 1890 Number 40
Antique Military Teak Campaign chest of drawers Victorian 19th Century circa 1890, (Number 40) the two section chest with original flush mounted brass handles and original brass escutcheons. The upper section with two short and one long drawers, the lower section with two long drawers all raised on turned feet, the drawers are hand-dovetailed, feature the original backboards.
The chest is in two sections for easy transportation. Chests that were constructed in the colonies, such as this one, were usually constructed of Camphor, Mahogany and Teak. The chest benefits from a rich golden Mahogany colour, with a wonderful grain configuration to the front and sides.
Mahogany, Camphor and Teak were used extensively for military chests because they had the advantage of only minimally expanding and contracting when exposed to extremes in temperature and humidity. Camphor is particularly resistant to woodworm, termites and other tropical infestations.
The chest is in good condition having just been fully restored. The top is flat with age related marks and no splits. It is of generally a good colour. One lock is missing and all escutcheons are present. The drawers all open and close smoothly, there are no odours or smells, light staining to inside of drawers. The chest is structurally sound with no evidence of any woodworm.
