Japanese single section isho tansu (clothing chest) from the Iwayado area. It is made with keyaki (elm) wood on the front and has a beautiful all original translucent lacquer finish. This chest consists of four drawers of different sizes. Elaborate iron hardware includes a very large phoenix shaped lock plate on the top drawer and two peony shaped lock plates on two of the other drawers. Drawer pulls are warabite shaped. There is a lovely old original patina around all the iron work on the front of the chest due to oxidation. Edo Period (circa 1800's) Size: 24 1/2" high x 36" wide x 18 1/4" deep.
