A brass bound, mahogany, short drawer Secretaire antique Campaign Chest by Gregory Kane of Dublin.

The secretaire has a maroon leather skiver that has built up a patina to almost blend in with the surrounding rosewood. G. Kane, Maker with the address of 68 - 69 Dame Street, Dublin is stamped to the leather writing surface. The secretaire has 2 short above 1 long drawer faced in rosewood and 4 pigeon holes above. Although often in the shadow of Ross & Co., Kane was a good Irish maker who was innovative in his work. He won a number of exhibition medals and he made good quality furniture.

The Dame Street address dates this chest to after 1847 but before 1887 when Kane died.
