Item Description

Outstanding Camphorwood Chest of Drawers with internal sliding Desk, made in 19th Century British India 

This rare and wonderful piece of Victorian 'Campaign' or 'Colonial'  furniture was made  in 2 sections- upper and lower so that it could be more easily carried either on and off a ship or on a military campaign.  The chest has the internal bureau which slides forward to create a desk with pigeon holes.

The sweet odour of camphorwood was specially used to repel insects.

With original inlaid brass handles, drawer locks and banding.

Measures 48" tall x 39" wide x 23" deep. (122 x 99 x 58 cms) In excellent condition. Circa 1850 - 1880.
