Product Description

This is an authentic Japanese Okimizuya tansu.  It is a chest specifically used in Chado (the art of Tea Ceremony) for the preparation as well as the conclusion of the ceremony.

It was made entirely of Japanese Cypress wood (known as Hinoki) as well as faux Cypress for the back of the chest.   Behind the sliding doors hides a spacious interior where the tea accoutrements would be stored.  There are wood hooks for hanging the water scoop called Hishaku and a slatted wood drainage floor protected by a metal lined drawer where washed and rinsed pottery was dried.
