Large wooden kimono ishô dansu

Price:  1.550,00

Rare and completely restored large wooden kimono ishô dansu 着物衣装箪笥 (cabinet of drawers for kimono) in two sections with outstanding lacquered rims and hardware. Fully restored, cleaned and waxed.

A feature you don’t come across that often is that the refined hardware and horizontal rims of the cabinet are lacquered in crimson red with a ‘wear’-design in black, green, and white.
The cabinet is made of kiri 桐 (paulownia) wood. Slightly varnished, giving it a tad darker hue.

The upper part with a pair of hinged doors with elegantly shaped handles with ornamental backplates. The interior is fully packed with nine large and one smaller pull-out drawer and three drawers of different size.
The lower part has two large drawers. These drawers are equipped with refined ‘mokkô’-shaped bail handles with matching ornamented backplates. In the middle a small circular lock plate.
This cabinet is very suitable for a lot of easy storage space, due to the many different compartments. All the drawers run very smoothly as well, and the doors work great as well and close effortlessly.

The kimono cabinet is in a very good completely resorted condition with some traces of wear along the fragile lacquer rims. Please look at the last photo of a tiny chipped corner. No keys included.
