Japanese Vintage 5 Drawer Lidded Dressing Tansu Solid Zelkova Wood For Sale
This is a lateMeiji Era (c. 1900) kyodai (lidded mirror box) with a unique arrangement of four drawersand an additionallidded fifth drawerlocated behind theflip top lidded top section. This type of tansu chest was used to storemake-up, jewelryas well as mirror. The lid flips over to expose a large inner storage area (see pictures 3 & 6).
Thechest's entire exterior is made of a tangential cutkiri (zelkova) wood with cryptomeria interiors.There is a persimmon tannin stain with a kijiro laquer finish.The interiors have a black lacquer finish. all hinges and drawer pulls are of a hand forged copper. On the flip top lid there are two holes where a mirror stand once stood. Both mirror and stand have been lost to the century of this chests life. There are a few minor repairs on the sides and back of this chest seen in my enlarged pictures. This chest is all original and overall in very fine condition with a very warm patina that only a century of loving use could give.
All drawers run smoothly and the lidded top opens and closes with ease. Please enjoy viewing the enlarged photos of this chest before offerding. This chest measures 12 1/2" wide by 11" high by 7 3/4" deep (31 x 28 x 19.5 cm). Very solidly built, a great piece of Japanese history; and makes a classic desk top organizer today.
