A dark oak Campaign Cabinet that wouldn't look out of place on a teak or mahogany campaign chest.
This cabinet has large brass, triangular corner fittings to the top and bottom with large, skeletal campaign handles to the sides for carrying. The back and doors are panelled with a wide cock beading used to the front as the only concession to decoration. The door has a Bramah lock with the earlier 124 Piccadilly address and a removable shelf with deep lip to the interior. It is debatable as to whether this cabinet originally had a shelf or not. The shelf looks good but its support battens are made of teak and obvious replacements. It is certainly more practical for use with the shelf.
This is an earlier cabinet than most and its size a little larger than a standard campaign chest which would fit in with its period. Early 19th Century.
