This is an antique Japanese 2 section wedding kimono chest called Kannon Biraki tansu that features double hinged doors on the upper section from Middle Meiji period ( 1880's - 1890's).

These chests were often given as part of a bride's dowry where she could safely store her wedding kimono to cherish for years to come.  It would make a wonderful clothes dresser or storage unit for any home or bedroom with the added versatility of separating the sections for different rooms of the house.
