This is a 2 section antique Japanese stacking chest called Kiri Kasane Tansu from 1880 to 1890 from the mid Meiji era. It measures 40.5" high by 37.88" wide by 16.88" deep. It is made of Kiri (Paulownia) wood. The hinged door on the bottom right opens to reveal 2 additional drawers hidden from view. As if this wasn't enough, the tansu maker added one additional secret box to the piece. Also, back of drawers has a small wooden piece which can be sliding out for secret compartment. (see photo).
