A stunning antique 1910s or 1920s large Japanese elm (keyaki) tansu chest with original cast brass hardware. The hardware and linen chest pine sliding drawers show a European influence indicating that this cabinet may have been created for a European market or for export. Fourteen drawers offers a stunning amount of storage. The graining in the elm wood and the original finish is just beautiful. Disassembles into four pieces: frame base and three stacking cabinet portions. Retracting handles in the top of each cabinet portion enable easy disassembly, movement, and interlock with the cabinet portion above for stability when the cabinet is assembled.
