This is a hard to find antique smaller tansu storage chest/cabinet hand crafted with beautifully selected grained wood and fine lines and a multitude of storage features and options. It is in remarkably clean original "natural" condition.
It is very strong yet surprisingly light weight and easy to move around. It is 100% original and in fine antique condition with Zelcova (elm) and Kiri (Princess tree) woods construction, and originally the hard to find original upper section of a two section piece. A fine Japanese antique multiple drawer bottom feature plus two sliding doors, with 16 deep drawers handy to have for documents, records, and smalls. Handles are original hand wrought iron hardware. Leave it to the Japanese master craftsmen to create this amazing practical and useful storage chest crafted from natural kiri wood.Also known as Paulownia, the Japanese kiri specifically refers to P. Tomentosa; it is also known as the "princess tree". It was once customary to plant a Paulownia tree when a baby girl was born, and then to make it into a dresser as a wedding present when she married. Paulownia is also the mon (clan symbol) of the office of prime minister and also serves as the emblem of the cabinet and the government (the chrysanthemum being the Imperial Seal of Japan). Excellent, clean original condition just the way we like to find them! Dimensions: 33 inches tall and 37.75 inches wide and 18.25 inches deep. Provenance: from a Japanese second generation family who are antique tansu specialists from Yamagata, Northern Japan.
