Rare African Campaign Military Metal Chest Luggage The Owomeji Jones Brothers
I have another of these listed under my other items, that piece is the same form and finish but longer and with an original engraved plaque which reads J. Willis Felming ESQ Deputy Lieut which I believe to be John Willis Fleming (28 November 1781 4 September 1844) was an English landed proprietor and Conservative Member of Parliament. These trunks came from the same family so were no doubt used together. This chest is heavily and campaign used, it is totally original, the patina is to die for. These chests were made for and used on West African campaigns, they are painted with the half moon which was. A symbol of good luck. It is a lovely size, we could fit bun feet to raise it a little and it would be a brilliant coffee table. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.
