Hand crafted in China around 1900, this "Campaign" chest or "Tansu" was designed to be carried into the field for military officers. Original wrought iron mounts include corners and retractable handles, some of the sliding drawer locks still work.
Pine has hand planing marks everywhere and carved wooden pegs at the hand dovetailed joints. The finish is in excellent condition, preserving loads of antique character - mars, dings and stains, see photos.
There are no keys for the locks, a door at the bottom right secured two tiny drawers for valuables.
Measurements of this historic Asian chest are 36" wide, 17" deep and 35" tall.
