Victorian camphorwood ottoman

This Victorian camphorwood ottoman was made circa 1870, and commissioned by an officer for his service in the East. NOW SOLD
Originally, this antique trunk was made to transport an officer’s uniforms, and his personal effects around the British Empire.
The reason this Victorian ottoman was made of camphor wood, was to keep moths and insects away from the clothes carried inside.
It has brass corners, which were put into the frame to help the chest withstand the rigours of being transported around the world.
We have used our own craftsmen to upholster and deep button the top in fine antiqued leather, originally it would have been a wooden lid. The leather is hand dyed and then our antique finish is applied by hand.
The lid opens to reveal a full storage area.
As you lift the lid by the brass loop handle your senses are filled with the delicate perfume of the Camphor wood.
Imagine if this Victorian camphorwood ottoman could retell the stories of the journeys and adventures it has been through. It could have been transported around the North West frontier, other parts of the British Empire in the East or even around China during the Boxer rebellion.
This Camphorwood chest can be used in many places around your home. It can be used as a hall-seat, imagine sitting on it as you slip on your shoes. In a bedroom at the end of the bed or in a bay. It would also be a fantastic coffee table or just as occasional seating in a bay window of a lounge or drawing room.
