This is an antique 2 section Japanese Gifu Mizuya, Kitchen chest from the Late Meiji period (1890's-1900's). This tansu is from Gifu region.

The elegant color tones of this tansu come from the­ ­­ ­Keyaki (Zelkova), Suginoki (Cryptomeria) and Hinoki (Cypress) woods. Keyaki wood is valued in Japan and used often for furniture because of its beautiful color and grain.
