This is a 1 piece tea chest called Cha Tansu that measures 47.75" wide by 52" high by 18" deep. Made of Zelkova (Keyaki) door panels and drawer fronts and Cedar (Suginoki) for the balance of the piece, it was lacquered in rich Urushi and retains its natural wood grain. Behind the sliding doors are decorative shelves where seasonal decorations could be displayed. Its age is from the 1890's to 1900 (mid Meiji era).
