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

The elegant color tones of this tansu come from the­ ­­ ­Keyaki (Zelkova), Sugi ( Cedar ) and Hinoki (Cypress) woods. Keyaki wood is valued in Japan and used often for furniture because of its beautiful color and grain. Cypress wood is commonly used for its beautiful golden brown hues and its clean grain that makes it appealing for furniture and design accents.

Mizuya Dansu was used in the kitchen of a Japanese household for the storage of plates, utensils, food items and especially large pottery jars of water since running water was not readily available in the home.
