How to find us
Our History Asian Furniture
Japanese Antiques A) We buy directly in Asia or rely upon our agents who go to auction in the Japanese countryside to find very special Japanese antiques for Del-Teet. These "tansu" chests provide the perfect counterpoint to the clean lines of contemporary furnishings and are welcome in any interior design.

This is a small sampling of the many one-of-a-kind Japanese antiques that Del-Teet stocks. The tall cabinet on the left, stored a lady's dowry goods while tansu on the lower on the left, held textiles and household goods. Both tansu cabinets are from Japan and are made of kiriwood dating from about 1880 to 1920. While these exact pieces may not be available, many similar cabinets are shown at our store

Japanese AntiquesB)This is the classic design of kitchen tansu from the Japanese area of Nagoya. The cabinet held cooking articles and food stuffs and was usually constructed of cypress and cedar woods.

Japanese AntiquesC) Used for storage of dowery goods and clothing the 3-section tansu is constructed of lightweight kiri wood.  Wooden trays to store clothing are behind the large doors.
