Large Antique Camphor Chest – circa 1900 – this beautiful chest/coffer/box is a beautiful colour. It has good quality brass bindings and robust carrying handles. The inside is very clean – this would traditionally have been used for the transport of linen. On board ship these were very common items particularly for ex-pats. Today they make ideal coffee tables as well as elegant storage. A blanket box at the base of the bed is one use or of course – a toy box! We always try to have one or two camphor trunks in stock as they are a very popular item. Their light colour and clean lines lend themselves to contemporary settings as well as more traditional ones. Being a hard robust wood make it a good family choice!
