19th Century Campaign Candle Box or Chest on Stand by J. Bramah

$2,650per set

About

Presenting a gorgeous and beautifully proportioned early 19th century Campaign candle box or chest on stand. Early 19th century, made in Britain, circa 1810-1815. Perfect as a side table for a sofa or just for use as a side cabinet for storage. The box sits on to the stand and lifts off. The stand is of more recent (later) construction and is made of tiger oak but it has a very nice patina and is very nicely made. It probably was made at the beginning of the 20th century, circa 1910-1920 for the specific purpose of displaying this gorgeous and rare campaign box. Classic Campaign style box with its brass bands on all sides and recessed carry handle on the top to protect it from damage whilst on campaign. The lid opens on original brass hinges, to reveal a simple storage area. There is one separated shelf of secondary storage area on the right that would have been used for holding candles. The main storage area of the box would most likely be for the storage and transport of candelabras. It sits on 4 cross banded and supported legs that make up the stand. The original brass front lock is marked for “J. Bramah – Patent” with the Royal Crown symbol in 3 places. Unfortunately, we do not have the key. Made of exotic mahogany with gorgeous patina and grain. This box was made by Joseph Bramah and is exceptionally rare and desirable!
