Seller: garygermer (1,163) 99.6%, Location: Portland, Oregon, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 122244284957 Antique c1890 American Empire MAHOGANY Diminutive 4 Drawer Campaign Chest Gary Germer is proud to host the estate of Academy Award winner, Elmo Williams. Before his passing in November, Mr. Williams was the oldest living Academy Award winner. He was the Oscar winner in 1952 for the movie High Noon, featuring Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly. We are offering this item and many others from his fabulous estate. Made in the late 19th century of Mahogany these are commonly known as Wellington Chests after the famous hero, Arthur Wellesley the 1st Duke of Wellington. The attribution is generally considered spurious as the style didn't become popular until the 1820's well after the fall of Napoleon at Waterloo. Originall designed as a form of portable furniture for military campaigns and then transitioned into the civilian sphere. I've seen a number of similar pieces over the years including drinks chests, and my favorite, portable desks. The thing they all have in common is good function and portable design, extraneous elements are stripped off and they're ready to go wherever the Empire sends you. The four drawers were designed to be kept closed during transport by locking one of the side panels with the now lost key. In very good condition, typical surface scuffs for age. Please see #4 photograph for slight crack at edge. Does not pierce through wood. Stands 17" tall x 16" wide x 10" deep. 10369-167 *Welcome! and a big thank you for shopping with Gary Germer & Associates, we appreciate you stopping by.
