SOLD —VINTAGE – ELM BRASS – BOUND SECRETAIRE MILITARY CHEST— SOLD
A figured elm 20th century brass bound two section, secretaire campaign chest. The carcass having 20 brass straps, 6 escutcheons plates and 4 heavy carrying handles, a further 10 flush brass are fitted to the secretaire and 4 long drawers. Concealed behind the fall front, its fitted interior has 2 small short drawers, 1 long, with round inset brass ring-pulls, a centre cupboard with moulded door, flanked by 3 pigeonholes either side. The old fall front baize has been replaced with a lovely faded green hand stained inset leather. We have stripped off the old dark polish, thereafter fine sanding the whole chest, then simply sealing and beeswaxing. This has produced a really warm natural finish. Top drawer, secretaire and second drawer have keys and lock, the 2 other lower drawers do not. Slight mark on the bottom L/H corner of drawer number two.
