Tremendous Tansu

We are expanding our reach further yet - into the far past with this great find. This black lacquer cabinet has a phenomenal provenance. Dating from 1770 AD, the lotus flower design is actually the royal crest of the Sakakiwara family, one of Japan's regal clans during the Tokugawa period. This gentleman's chest features gilt silver hardware and is in very good condition, given its age and travel.
Dimensions: 39.25" w x 19.5" d x 49.5" h.
