Japanese Vintage 6 Drawer W/ Secret Tansu Haribako Sewing Box Burl Mulberry

This is a late Taisho Era (c. 1926) haribako (sewing box) with a unique arrangement of four drawerswith an additionalremoveable top drawer and a hidden sisxth drawerlocated behind theremoveable drawer in the flip top lidded section. The remoeable section under the flip top lid is divided into three sections with a removeable pin cushion on the left and on the far right a "third hand" which flips up and sets into place. Behind this is a secret drawer, opened by pulling it out using the finger hole (see pictures 8 & 9). On the back right side (see picture 10) is a sloght in which a bamboo measuring devise (not included) could be stored. This type of tansu chest was used to store valuables as well as equipment for the person of the house to do repairs on Kimono and bedding as well as money and valuables.

The entire surface of this chest is made of burled Japanese mulberry wood with kiri (paulownia) wood interiors and zelkova (keyaki) case work. The hardware is all brass with an aged patina. This chest is all original and overall in very fine condition with a very warm patina that only nearly 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 11 1/2" wide by 9 1/4" high by 7" deep (29 x 23 x 18 cm). Very solidly built, a great piece of Japanese history; and makes a classic desk top organizer today.
