Product Description

This is an antique Japanese merchant chest called Choba Tansu.  It was constructed from 100% Paulownia (Kirinoki) wood from Tochigi region.

Merchant chests were displayed with pride by the owner of a shop to give customers the impression of success and longevity of the business establishment.  It was almost always situated in a prominent location of the store to catch the view of the client.

It features recessed front and side handles as well as decorative corner hardware.  The area behind the sliding doors was originally used to store business records and books. It would make a great bedside stand or decorative side table.
