Maker: Alex Boswell
Subcategory: Campaign Chests
Although a relatively standard mahogany campaign chest, the maker's name of Alex. Boswell elevates this to a piece of greater interest.
The chest has brass strap work and flush handles as you would expect but is a little smaller in size than most. The label is to the inside back of the first long drawer and gives Boswell's addresses as 8 South Hanover Street and 40 Nicolson Street, Edinburgh. Late 19th Century.
