Antique Japanese single section tansu from the Sendai region made from kuri (chestnut) wood with a red lacquer finish. Its drawers are adorned with large iron lock plates with elaborate floral motifs. The mokko (melon) shaped handles are mounted on flower shaped plating. The lockbox conceals two drawers within, and comes included with a key. The backside of this tansu is inscribed with old kanji that appears to be denoting which area of the house it was meant to be placed in, and also states it was “owned by Kurita”.
