Antique Storing Chest



Retail price



28 x 14.5 x 13″ high.


Beautiful antique shell inlaid chest originally used for storing blankets. Original hard ware and remnants of paint on this one of a kind chest perfect for storing or for a small coffee table. Circa 1950

This chest was sourced in the spirit of Wabi-Sabi, a Japanese philosophy that beauty can be found in imperfection and impermanence. It is a beauty of things modest and humble. A beauty of things unconventional. It is the opposite of vulgarity. The costs of achieving this kind of minimalism are seemingly inconsistent with its mission of aesthetic humility. This kind of luxury is for a select few: The Emperor of Japan had a Wabi garden. Wabi is for people who already have a lot.
