An extremely robust, large wooden military campaign chest/ trunk with the hand painted remnants of “Capt D.S. Frazer 14/20 Hussars” inscription across the front.
Rusty steel corner protectors and lower steel edging have aided in preventing damage to the trunk and add to its strong look. Heavy wooden 2.5cm thick dovetail construction with removable internal dividers.
Signs of historic worm to one side of the top as seem within the images, and a few holes to the underside that has been treated. Scratches, scuff marks, and the odd dent here and there as to be expected.
Once a military travel chest for Captain D.S. Frazer – 14th/20th King's Hussars (1929 – 1932), the chest spent the majority of its life being used to store chicken feed on a Herefordshire farm before we discovered it.
The chest would look fantastic with a rich wax coating, although we're quite drawn to it in its current condition, and have plumped to leave it with its unkempt appearance, only giving it a light clean to its exterior.
