Japanese Sendai Tansu chest from the Meiji period in Japan, late 19th century. It appears to be made of Keyaki and Suginoki woods. It features an abundance of hand-forged iron hardware on the front and iron handles on the side. There are four large drawers and five small drawers, three of which are hidden behind a small door. Lacquered with a reddish-brown color, the front is a little lighter than the top and sides. There are large, exposed dovetails seen on the top at the sides.
