This is an antique Japanese Ko Bako or Personal Storage Box with drawers that was made from Japanese Ash (Toneriko), Horse Chestnut (Tochinoki), and Paulownia (Kirinoki) woods. The Ash grain on the drawer fronts provides visual movement and beauty to this treasure.
Originally used to store notes, ephemera, photos, stationery and anything else that would fit in the drawers, its present day use works very well as a jewelry box, a cosmetic box, or a convenient place to store bills and receipts.
