A set of teak Campaign Shelves.

The shelves fit into rebates cut to the inside of the uprights and are fixed into place by pegs. This allows them to be dismantled to flat pack for convenience of travel. The edges of the uprights and shelves are cut with a moulding for decoration. Although the shelves could be used on the floor they were originally meant to sit on a campaign chest. Circa 1900.
