    Product Description

    This is a 3 section kitchen chest called Goshu Mizuya Tansu. It was constructed using Cypress (Hinoki), Persimmon (Kakinoki) and Cryptomeria (Suginoki) woods. Originally kept in an old Japanese country home, it was used to store dishes, pots of water, and eating utensils.

    It would make a great statement in any room of the house as well as functionality as a storage unit.
    The high quality craftsmanship is well used in this chest including the mortise and tenon joinery and the inlay work.  The Persimmon wood drawer fronts, panels and door runners are solid wood rather than a laminate or veneer that is more commonly used. The bronze metalwork was all hand made and features sliding door handles with Chrysanthemum and Paulownia in relief on one set of doors and Peony on another set of doors
    An unusual unique feature is the original base stand made to raise the height of this tansu. It was likely made as a custom commissioned feature for the tansu maker by the original owner who felt their height made for a more comfortable use with a raised chest.
