This is an authentic and original antique 2 section Japanese chest on chest called a Nihonmatsu Kasane Tansu. It was constructed from Zelkova (Keyaki), Cryptomeria (Suginoki) woods and it dates from the middle Meiji period (1880-1890). It measures 42.25 "tall, 49.62" wide, 17.75" deep. The metalwork is a very rare design of the Shishi (mythical Buddhist lion) and Botan (good luck Peony flower). It was made by an expert craftsman and was quite likely specially commissioned making this a unique piece.
