    Known as a Cho Dansu (Merchants Ledger chest), this tansu chest was made in the late Edo Era (c. 1850) . Used to store business accessories as well as money, documents and other valuables.
    It has 4 drawers
    Sliding Doors to further drawer and shelves.
    Originally black lacquer with light wood fronts
    Sold as a Project piece
    It needs refinishing, locks need attention and refitting (I have put 2 extra working locks in)
    All very doable with nothing major to make it a very attractive piece.
    I have more Tansu that need work doing, but at the moment no time.
    I am more than happy to let them sit online until I have the time.
    Should someone wish to buy at a price that reflects the work needed
    This is a very solid piece
    Width 22.75 inch / 58 cm
    Depth 14.5 inch / 37 cm
    Height 21 inch / 53 cm
    A really nice sized piece
    Big enough to impress, small enough to fit in anywhere
    This will be excellent looking piece that would not be of place in any Tansu collection
    Some historic bug evidence long since treated
    Plus re-treated by me on delivery, as I do with all items I aquire
    Some knocks and wear consistent with age as to be expected
    All add to the rich patina finish which only age can

    Yamabushi came about through a long time involvement in the martial arts, which brought about an interest in Japanese weaponry and antiques from the Samurai era up to edged weapons of the Japanese in the second world war. I now buy and sell items worldwide, the vast majority of them coming direct from Japan via trusted dealers I have traded with for some years. Stock varies and is constantly changing, though I do have a particular leaning towards hand weapons and tansu, I am always willing to try and source items for customers. I have provided quality pieces to museums, TV and theatre companies worldwide. I try to keep our price range affordable rather than high end arty, but these are often dictated by shipping costs, customs charges, etc. For your assurance I offer a no quibble returns policy should an item not be as expected, for further piece of mind I accept payment by Paypal, along with my preference of payment via bank transfer.
