Military Campaign Bookcase

hover over image to zoom

A folding, military, campaign bookcase made from a wonderful solid wood, perhaps Amboyna. The wood shows a range of colours and, as with teak, is clearly oily thus the mortise and tenon joints are fixed with dowels rather than glued. The cupboard swings open on a large, solid brass hinge, presenting two cases with doors that lock to keep the contents safe and ordered during transport.

Probably Indonesian, Batavian, circa 1850.
