    Indian Iron Bound Teak Limber Chest - 19th Century

    A01148

    £595

    This antique limber chest would have been used by the British army in India in the late 19th century. These chests would have stored ammunition and the large handles served a functional purpose allowing the chests to be attached to cannons and artillery towed by horses and camels. This served a double purpose as the chests became seats for the cannoneers. 

     

    These chests were extremely sturdy and made of hardy teak wood bound with iron. The average limber chest was designed to be able to carry over three times its weight in ammunition. 

     

    What was once a very functional piece, is now a truly unique decorative antique and a good size for use as a side table. The teak wood and ironwork has developed a wonderful rich patina with age and the carry handles have been smoothed with years of constant use.

    58.5 x 50 x 46  (wxdxh cms)
