Japanese Furniture (Chests - Tansu)
All of our pieces are sold in as original a condition as possible. We do not use harmful acids to 'blonde' or bleach the wood to strip off any colour or finish nor do we apply stain or varnish.
If you value the authenticity of a piece then choose your dealer wisely as some strip the colour and finish which, not only removes the soul and history of the piece but also devalues it as an authentic antique.
At Japanache, we clean chests using water and wood soap to remove dirt and grime before applying a special Beeswax and Orange Oil mixture to feed and preserve the wood.
All of our pieces are fumigated to keep unwanted pests out of Australia.
