Royal House Antiques is delighted to offer for sale this very fine, highly collectable solid oak with over sized brass fittings Military Campaign chest of drawers with mahogany lined & brown leather secretaire desk circa 1880. This is a very fine and rare piece of campaign furniture; you dont see many oak examples and almost none with the oversized brass trim around the edges. This was clearly made for some military officer of importance.The drawers have a very nice secretaire desk section to the middle in mahogany with a gold leather embossed brown leather writing surface, this again is a sign of pure quality and opulence. In terms of the condition, we have cleaned waxed and polished it from top to bottom. One of the small drawer handles inside the secretaire section is missing and the top has various marks from genuine age and honest use, I can have it refinished for the cost price however for me campaign furniture with honest patination should stay as it is, it all becomes part of the history and story. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.
