19th Century Leather Military Campaign Trunk

19th Century Leather Military Campaign Trunk (England, circa 1840)

£2,250.00

A Charming And Very Good Quality Mid 19th Century
Camphor Wood, Leather And Brass Bound Military
Campaign Trunk Having Studwork Decoration And
Hinged Lid With Working Lock and Key Flanked
By Original Brass Swan Neck Handles To Sides

 

(Originally this trunk would have been made for use
in the army to transport from one battlefield to the next
being placed upon a couple of trestles in the tents at each
location, hence the carrying handles and ability to lock it.
Interestingly it is constructed from very high quality camphor
wood which has then been covered with leather and brass bound
decoration, both of which have aged absolutely beautifully to
retain a lovely mellow colour and patina. Nowadays of course
this would make the perfect coffee table with storage, or could
simply be used as a storage chest/trunk in a variety of different
places around the home whilst allowing the purchaser to
imagine all sorts of tales and stories from it’s past. Overall the
condition is very much worn, or used, but the item has been
sympathetically cleaned, waxed and tidied in our workshops
ensuring it is now in home ready condition. It really is a quite
beautiful piece and also incredibly functional and very much
fit for its original purpose.)
