19th Century Late Edo Period Meiji Period Wood Black Drawer Chest / Tansu Chest



We Japanese introduce unique items with unique aesthetics, purchasing routes, and ways that no one can imitate. This is a chest of drawers from the late Edo period to the Meiji period in Japan. It may have turned black due to soot over a long period of time. I feel wabi-sabi. The height is just right, and it would be nice to decorate it with a vase on top. Also, because it is so old, there are traces of worm-eaten in the drawer. A groove is carved on the left side. This may have originally been something like a shelf on the left side. I repaired the drawer so it goes in and out smoothly.
