ANTIQUE JAPANESE DOUBLE DOOR TANSU DOCUMENT CHEST SOLID CRYPTOMERIA WOOD


Known as a chobadansu, this chest was made and used about 90 years ago in the late Taisho period (c. 1925). The chobadansu, or document chest with drawers and doors, was used to store an individual's or shop's accounts, documents, and valuables.
This small tansu chest is made of solid sugi (cryptomeria). The handles are made of hand forged iron that dates back nearly a century, and the latching door pull includes a raised family crest in the form of a bellflower on its face (see picture 2).
All drawers as well as doors move easily without binding. This chest has a 90+ year old warm aged patina and remains in very fine condition and should serve one well for another century of use. It measures 17 1/4" wide by 14 1/2" high by 14 1/2" deep (44 x 37 x 37 cm). A great piece of Japanese history and a very interesting and functional piece of furniture.

L1002 VICTORIAN STYLE CARVED ROSE CREST RED VELVET TUFTED PARLOR CHAIR

This Antique Victorian style carved Mahogany Crest Upholstered Parlor Chair. Carved and shaped upholstered arm rests and cabriole legs, upholstered in a stunning red velvet. Rolled and tufted back and sides. In very good condition. Measures 25" wide,22" deep and 45.5" high. A Victorian house from this period was idealistically neatly divided in rooms, with public and private space carefully separated. The Parlor was the most important room in a home and was the showcase for the homeowners. This was where guests and many times, business associates were entertained. A bare room was considered to be in poor taste, so every surface was filled with objects that reflected the owner's interests and aspirations. The more ornate, the better off and more prosperous the homeowner appeared to be.Research Consulted: Research Consulted: The Collectors Complete Dictionary of American Antiques by Frances Phipps; Victorian Decor by Martin M.

L42 ANTIQUE AMERICAN PAINTED WINDSOR SACK BACK CHAIR

beautiful Antique Painted Windsor Sack Back Chair with continuous arm. Oval saddle seat, shaped swell stretchers. In good condition, old split to seat. Some wear to green paint, still shows well. Late 19th, early 20th century. The name sack-back refers to a sack-like covering that is said to have been pulled over the backs of these chairs with the purpose of warding off winter drafts. Sack-backs almost always had an oval seat. Sometimes shield or D shaped seats were used, but these would be custom-made chairs. Basic production models would have seven long spindles and four short ones, fancier ones might have nine long and six short. A Windsor chair is a chair built with a solid wooden seat into which the chair-back and legs are round-tenoned, or pushed into drilled holes, in contrast to standard chairs, where the back legs and the uprights of the back are continuous. The seats of Windsor chairs were often carved into a shallow dish or saddle shape for comfort. Traditionally, the legs and uprights were usually turned on a pole lathe. The back and sometimes the arm pieces (if arms are present) are formed from steam bent pieces of wood.
