This exquisite antique chest made from mahogany and lined in camphor wood has been in our family for years.
The camphor wood lining is a superior make of red cedar and was used as a natural moth proofing material hundreds of years ago.
The piece is very sturdy and is in exquisite condition.
It still has the original brass lock clasp in the front and is strong enough to sit on.
The natural scent of the cedar of the camphor wood is still evident and acts as a natural and beautiful way to keep winter rugs and blankets dry.
A must see.
Very few seen in antiques shops nowadays
