Campaign Chests

I found this campaign chest in Birmingham. Asking $215. I had no idea what a campaign chest was. Webster's has two definitions:

1. money collected and set aside for use in a campaign, esp. a political one; a campaign fund.
2. a low chest of drawers having handles at each side for lifting.

I love the look of storage spaces with these tiny little drawers. Check out Desire-to-Inspire's entry on "Card Catalogs". Similar but different. One person even uses is for liquor storage...

  1. 'Campaign' furniture was created to be disassembled easily and was carried around by politicians while they were campaigning - kind of like a reverse IKEA!
