This 19th-century walnut chest was originally used by a Chinese pharmacy to organize and store herbal medicines. A statement piece brilliantly constructed with mortise and tenon joinery, it has thirty drawers, each beautifully dovetailed together with six individual compartments. Paper labels designating the former contents of each drawer provide graphic rhythm to the chest's front, contrasting against the wood's rich, dark lacquer finish.

Additional Dimensions:
Drawers: 7.75"W x 19"D x 4"H
Drawer Compartments: 3.75"W x 6"D x 4"H
