Large Antique Military Camphor Wood Chest

  • £495.00

This is a handsome large chest which dates to the 19th century.

Made of solid camphor wood and originally used as a military chest it could serve a variety of purposes in any room, offering masses of storage space for all sorts of things.

The chest is extremely heavy and solid and has a large lift up lid to the top which opens to reveal a clean interior fitted with a leather stay and two large locks.

To either end there is a brass carrying handle and the chest corners and edges are bound with brass supports.

The wood has a very aged and evocative look.


This trunk is in solid structural condition with many marks of age and use.

Internally the candle box is missing to the right hand side.

Two of the brass corner supports are missing and also two of the brass edge pieces.

The wood is very well aged, we have preserved the chest the way we found it, it may benefit from further restoration depending on personal taste.
