Mahogany Campaign Chest of Drawers, One Piece
Reference #: 0621-M106

An English campaign chest of drawers made with mellow light mahogany and a single piece, which is unusual for these chests, usually in two pieces (top and bottom) for easy transport. A bureau like this was traditionally used by English armies for their military campaigns of the 19th Century. As with all campaign chests, and the original brass escutcheons are flush with the drawers and without decoration to avoid damage during travel. These handles are antique but replaced. The grain of the mahogany is really good, as shown in image #6.
