This late-19th Century Japanese Tansu chest was used to store clothing and other personal effects in a traditional Japanese home. Because Japanese homes were (and are) relatively small, furniture was also relatively small. Rooms were used for multiple purposes, so furniture needed to be lightweight and portable. Accordingly, storage chests were lightweight and had handles for receiving carrying poles. The distinctive iron corner hardware provided structural stiffness and also served a decorative purpose. The handles are unusually beautiful and made from hand-forged iron. Locking hardware medallions are circular, providing a dramatic contrast with the simple rectangular outline of the chest. This Tansu is made up of two stacked chests of drawers. The chests have a natural patina and can be waxed or stained according to the buyer's wishes. The two sets of drawers can be separated, placed on stands and used as bedside chests.
