This mahogany campaign chest fits into the category of the unusual.

It was made to the size of one half of a campaign chest giving a low surface height and with a platform base as opposed to removable feet. The back board is thick and has obviously been made to add strength for travel. The timber is a good rich colour, set off with brass corners and strap work. An additional unusual feature to the chest is the secret compartment. This is to the middle of the top drawer base board where you might expect a section of wood joining the two parts of the lining. Depressing a brass plate set under the drawer front allows the cover to pop open revealing a space running the depth of the drawer to put money or documents.

The locks are all stamped VR with a crown showing that it is Victorian and there is a shaped brass nameplate to the top with entwined initials E and L. For modern day use the chest height is very practical. 2nd Half 19th Century.
