Campaign furniture was made to specifically fold or breakdown for ease of travel and was designed to be carried on the march by travelling armies, especially associated with British Army Officers, who often carried high quality portable furniture in the Georgian and Victorian Periods (1714-1901)

The most common item of campaign furniture was the military/campaign chest. These were made from either mahogany or teak and breakdown into two sections and have removable legs with brass strap work and corners for protection. Also having recessed handles that didn’t get broken off during transportation.
