Unusual Antique Japanese Cedar Tansu Cabinet, Late 19thC.

This is an unusual piece of antique Meiji period Japanese furniture, dating to the late 19th century. It is Tansu cabinet, probably of a type used by scholars as a desk tidy.

Made of a dark wood (probably cedar), the drawer fronts are finished in cork, and it is ornamented with small metal plates depicting flowers and animals in great details, the top two doors slide open.

Size

It measures 9” across by 11” tall and 4” deep.

Condition

Very good original condition (it has been newly cleaned, too); the metalwork is in good condition, and appears to be all original. There is a small amount of shrinkage, common in Tansu's of this age.

About me

I have collected glass and ceramics, antiques and antiquities for many years, and my shop philosophy is to sell very good antiques at very low prices very quickly so I do not need to carry much stock; larger shops will charge much more, but take much longer than I do to make a sale. Each to their own, then - but that makes my prices ultra-low compared to a bricks-and-mortar antiques shop.

I try to describe everything I sell as honestly as possible, including any damage, issues, or attributions to a maker, in my descriptions. If you have any questions, a problem with a piece you’ve bought, or even further info on a piece I’m selling (always welcome!) please mail me. Please don’t ever leave negative or neutral response without speaking to me – we can always come to a solution.
