A great relic from the Revolutionary War era, a small chest likely used by a Continental soldier to store personal effects at army camps. The box is 3.5 x 5.5 x 8 in., constructed of wood with a brass handle, latch, lock, hinges, and fittings while covered in leather. In 'dug' condition, the wood and leather is chipped throughout with a good amount of discoloration. A camp chest like this one was the personal belonging of George Washington and is now on display at the Smithsonian Museum of American History. Purchased by our consignor from a collector who legally excavated land at Valley Forge before it was bought by the National Park Service.
