Product Description

This is an antique Japanese 2 section wedding kimono chest called Kannon Biraki tansu that features double hinged doors on the upper section.  It was constructed entirely out of Paulownia wood (known in Japan as Kirinoki) and Cedar (Suginoki) and the iron fittings were hand made including the Hirute designed drawer pulls.

The main lock plate on the upper section shows the family crest of the previous owner of this chest.

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.
