Unique heavy classifier cabinet with 13 large and deep smooth running drawers. This very strong and sturdy cabinet is completely restored and functional with a very nice warm patina. All original hardware. The body of this cabinet has been executed with “Sashimono” technique. A technique for assembling furniture and other wooden items without nails, using both simple and highly complex wood joints. Mortises or grooves called ‘hozo’ are carved into the wood in order to join two boards in a blind joint that’s not visible from the surface. (Source Wikipedia). Please see picture no.4 that shows how the cabinet is constructed. The last picture shows the other half of this set of two cabinets. Similar but with a different configuration of the drawers. This piece is also offered in today’s auction, but is not included in this lot. If you would consider to acquire both cabinets the transport cost will be just for one chest only !! Made of hinoki cypress indigenous wood. When shipped we will add a certificate of authenticity.
