Japanese two sectioned chest of drawers (Isho-kasane-dansu) from Yonezawa. Constructed of Chestnut wood with Cedar wood case and interiors. Round lock plates engraved with plum blossom motif with arabesque surrounds. Mokko style drawer pulls against back plates cut and engraved as pine boughs. Good forged and cast iron hardware throughout with stained and lacquered finish. The Pine bough is a symbol of strength in the face of adversity while the plum is a symbol of youth and beauty. A chest such as this would have been used to store the valuable silk kimono owned by the women in the family. The small hinged drawer would have been used for the storage of smaller more valuable items. Each section mounted with a pair of opposing strap handles used for bamboo poles for easy transportation in case of fire.
