Made in Dublin.....makers brass label on the interior.... T.K. Austin ......a top quality Merchant in Dublin in the mid to late 19th Century.
Made for Military Campaign purposes.......it has brass fold-in handles and brass banding on all edges.
Made of highly desirable Coromandel Wood from Ceylon (now Sri Lanka).
The lid opens on hinges that fix into position.
It is monogrammed on the top bearing the owners initials...possibly "RCS".
The interior is lined with the original purple velvet and inside the top it has 4 brass hooks for attaching liquor glasses. We have found that Waterford Crystal Port Glasses fit perfectly.
The lock and fittings are all of the best quality and marked "R.C &; S" in a Crown.

The Sterling silver labels in the pictures are being sold separately.
Highly expensive piece when it was made.....only a very wealthy officer could have afforded this ! less
