Japanese Vintage 80 Year Old Showa Era Doored Paulownia Chadansu Tansu Chest For Sale

Japanese Vintage 80 Year Old Showa Era Doored Paulownia Chadansu Tansu Chest

Known as a chadansu, this chest was made and used about 80 years ago in the early Showa period (c. 1930).The chadansu or tea chest often had open areas for display of one's prized tea bowls or vases (see first picture).

This tansu chest is made of solid dove tailed kiri (paulownia) wood and hardened hinoki woodpeg construction (seenext to lastpicture). Both doors as well as the drawer moveeasily without binding.

Stylized fan cutouts act as hand holds to more easily carry this small chest (see pictures 5,6,& 7).

This chest has a 80+ year old warm aged patina, and,with the exception of some very minor signs of loving use is in very fine condition and should serve one well for another century of use.It measures14 1/4" wide by12" high by 10 1/2" deep (36 x30.5 x27 cm). A great piece of Japanese history and avery interesting and functional piece of furniture.
