Old Japanese wooden medicine chest (kusuri-dansu) with many drawers, circa End of Edo period, mid 19th century, approx. H 51.5 x 49.5 x 21cm (20.27 x 19.48 x 8.26in). Smaller than usual type. Because of such withered and damaged condition as is (also with some broken drawers, wood dust, warpage of top board, repair, etc), please rather consider it as more like a decorative object of art than a practical chest itself.

This is the pinnacle of production for imperial artist Seifu Yohei III, a large Taihakuji porcelain vase with carved designs enclosed in the original signed wood box.

Here we see two pheasants in a blossoming tree overlooking a large crag, with clouds brimming about the rim, all in carved relief. It is signed on the base D...
