This fine piece is in two halves with brass mounts and a central secretaire drawer. The whole interior, writing surface and facing drawers is veneered with walnut, perhaps specially commissioned? I have not seen this before on a military chest. It has a gilt tooled leather writing surface which is split at the fold. There are two pigeon holes and three drawers, one with pen and divisions together with original travelling board. Fitted with a brass Brahma lock and keys. All in working order.
The lower section has two short drawers and three long ash lined drawers which are fitted with sunken brass handles.The chest stands on four turned, screw off feet.
As with all these much travelled pieces there are a few minor losses and marks which I personally think all adds to the character! A lovely rich patina completes the nicest campaign chest that I have come across. The workmanship is excellent as are the brass fittings. Not the cheapest but without a doubt one of the best.

Size: 107.5cm high by 99cm
