The attention to design detail and skilled craftsmanship of this distinctive antique Japanese chest of drawers or matsu tansu - are excellent. Its ornate metalwork adds makes this a gorgeous piece a real Scaramanga original. 

As stylish as it is functional, its three drawers and carrying handles, make this cabinet ideal for storing your personal treasures in the bedroom, living room or hallway.

Japanese Chest Of Drawers dimensions: W85cm x D40cm x H56cm.

This is an authentic antique, it's black lacquer finish has taken over 100 years to evolve. It's rustic appeal, scuffs and distressing adds to its appeal and character.

Undoubtedly the hardware attached to the tansu is what makes this piece stand-out. Of course, it's mainly functional, while seeming decorative. While chest joints in much of Europe often used strong dovetails. In Japan, chest-makers used simple butted joints and pressed iron was used to strengthen tansus that were often used as travelling trunks. Most notably visible are the hikanagu - edge hardware that lines the corners and edges of a tansu. Obikanagu: - sash hardware that extends the front of a tansu - across the front of a door, the top, or the face of a door or drawer. The meita - the lock jamb plate is very decorative. Sumikanagu - found on drawer faces or drawer-corners and often match obikangu hardware. Hikite - the drawer pulls are lopped and look chunky along with the toshi-zagane  - the back plate for the drawer pull.
