Restored 1876 Stamped Camphor Wood Military Campaign Chest Of Drawers + Desk
Royal House Antiques is delighted to offer for sale this very rare original Camphor wood military campaign chest with sliding Secrataire desk and writing slope each lock numbered and stamped Stamford Co Feb 1 76 that has been lightly restored. A very rare and desirable piece of military used campaign furniture. There are hundreds of thousands of modern reproductions of these types of furniture and thousands of originals which have little to no proof they are the real deal, this piece is the correct timber for the era which is Camphor wood, each lock is numbered from 1 to 5 and stamped STANDARD PATD FED 1 76 STAMFORD CT, thats for the 1. Of February 1876, the back has half of a Victorian Depositary label still attached. Most of these campaign chests are simply drawers which were for officers of medium standing, the higher ranking officials had secratcaire sections as this does, there is a small sliding drawer section inside this single drawer, a writing slope which is height adjustable, this truly is a very fine piece of furniture and would have been commissioned for a very important military leader. We have lightly restored the chest to include sorting out some white marks on the top, the feet have been repaired, its then had a little polish, we have been careful to leave it original and it still has all the normal patina marks from honest age and fair use. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.
