A Delightful Mid 19th Century Camphor Wood Military
Campaign Trunk Of Good Proportions Having Original
Brass Bound Decoration And Carrying Handles Raised
On Later Brass Paw Feet

(This trunk would originally have been made for a sergeant
to transport around from battlefield to battlefield being placed
in his tent at each location, hence the carrying handles and
double lock. It has been constructed from camphor wood as this
is a well known wood for keeping clothes and linen smelling fresh
and clean. Nowadays of course this would make the perfect coffee
table with storage, or could simply be used as a storage chest/trunk
in a variety of different places around the home whilst allowing the
purchaser to imagine all sorts of tales and stories from it’s no
doubt rich and glorious history!)
