Linen Press Antique Campaign Chest

The top half of this chest is a panelled cupboard fitted with two linen press slide drawers and it is a rare form of campaign chest. The cupboard section is not made to be an inbuilt packing case, as with an Aldershot chest, but simply to offer a variation of design that some may find more practical.

Apart from the cupboard top it is similar to a standard military chest. It has flush handles, brass corners and strap work and, of course, turned removable legs. We have had only two other chests of this design. One earlier in date but also mahogany and one later in date but made of blond oak, so they can be considered scarce. Mid 19th century.
