Late 19th Century British Campaign Camphor Sea Chest


Classic British campaign camphor wood sea chest. Brass straps and handles, recessed brass pull and escutcheon with working lock and key. Feet were added to accommodate use as a coffee table (keeps your feet from hitting the box). Still has its aromatic smell natural to camphor, much like cedar. Great to use for linens, pillows, etc. Strong enough to sit on. Late 1800s. Refinished. Originally used by the British in the colonies to transport silks and Fine textiles back to England.
