New Campaign Furniture Catalog Available for Download


Christopher Clarke Antiques has released its latest catalog of campaign furniture called “An Officer’s Room,” which you can download for free from the company’s web site here.

Sean and Simon Clarke were extremely generous and helpful as I was researching English military and travel furniture for my book “Campaign Furniture.” The brother’s catalogs are a wealth of information on campaign furniture and include lots of original research into the makers and patents that are important to the style.

This catalog is no different. I’ve read it through twice – especially the section on the Fenby patent chairs, which I am researching now so I can reproduce them.

If you like campaign furniture, this catalog is a free little treat for you. By the way, all of the pieces in the catalog are for sale, in case you are also a furniture collector.

  1. Reblogged this on The Obsession Engine and commented:
    I really love this “Campaign Furniture”. Not only is it a great look to decorate with, its fantastic for hauling along for festival or other, longish-term, camping.

  2. Thanks Chris. Some neat stuff for sure. I love the portable bidet than can also be used as a side table! Tea anyone?

    I was wondering why the officers looked a little effeminate…
    “It was not unusual for a man to wear a corset in this period and it perhaps points to either the officers’ vanity or a previous liaison.”
