Solid Camphor Campaign Wood Chest

England. Circa 1830.

Solid camphor wood campaign chest in two parts and resting on turned feet. Sturdy construction with deep dovetailing and inset, flush mounted brass pulls. Ebonized stringing decorates each drawer front. Prized for its moth-repellant qualities, camphor wood -- a native Chinese species of evergreen -- was frequently used in the construction of sea chests. This particular example of campaign chest was probably produced in a busy harbor town or city.
