From our recent Japanese Acquisitions travels. This is a hard to find antique smaller tansu storage chest/cabinet , kodansu, hand crafted with fine 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 virtually mint condition with the Kiri wood in fine shape. A fine Japanese antique five drawer with simple horizontal drawers and with original hand wrought iron and handcrafted wooden handles and hardware. Showa period, 1930 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 (vis-à-vis the chrysanthemum being the Imperial Seal of Japan).Excellent, clean original condition just the way we like to find them!
