Description

An antique merchant’s chest with iron hardware from 19th century Japan. This late 1800s merchant’s chest comes from Japan, where it was made with Kiri wood and incised iron hardware. The chest features a full width top drawer, a bottom row with one medium and one small drawer and a middle section with two rows of three stacked drawers. Iron accents and handles contrast with the pale tint of the Kiri wood, while an incised iron hardware adorns the centre of the top drawer.

 

The sides feature handles so that the chest can be moved, a particularly important element for a chest made for merchants. This late 1800s antique Japanese merchant’s chest with incised iron hardware would be a captivating but functional decorative item in most homes.
