This 2 section merchant chest or Choba Dansu is from Showa 58 (1983) according to some writing found on a drawer. It measures 61.75" high by 48.5" wide by 17" deep. It is made of Katsura, Keyaki (Zelkova) and plywood. The Choba Dansu was used by merchants and was traditionally used in shops to impress customers with their multiple drawers, sliding doors and lots of hardware.
