This is a 2 section antique Japanese lacquer Nihon Matsu Kasane Tansu from Middle Meiji period ( 1880's - 1890's).  Used for the storage of Kimono, its substantial capacity was overshadowed by its beautiful design.

It was made in the famous tansu making town of  Nihonmatsu situated in northern Japan which was well known for their decorative and creative metal craftmanship.

It was constructed out of Zelkova (Keyaki) and Cryptomeria (Suginoki) woods.  The wiped lacquer technique was used in its finish to retain the gorgeous grain pattern of the drawer fronts.

The iron lock plates incorporate the auspicious bronze design while the double action locks are decorated with side by side Chrysanthemum blossoms.   

The sections can be separated for versatility allowing for use in different rooms of a home or displayed side by side under a large window sill or back to back to make a square table. 

All the locks work, with two keys
