19th century Japanese single-section lacquered wood merchant tansu with black iron hardware and locks with floriate buttons, bronze hirute handles, and featuring fourteen drawers of assorted sizes. Each side has one iron side lift carrying handle. 30 3/4"H x 36"W x 16"D. Very good overall condition with the original lacquer finish and intact hardware. There is a separation in the wood along each side, the drawers do not close completely flush with the case, and there is a faint semi-circular stain on the top. This tansu is from a Tucson estate.
