Dimensions are approximate because of the funky shape:
24 inches H x 17 1/2 inches W x 9 inches D
Purchased this at a private sale north of Chicago. The only info that I got was that the woman's mother purchased it at an auction in the 1970s. It was listed as Chinese but I don't think it feels Chinese. Someone else who saw the photos thought perhaps Korean. As far as age, it feels like 1920s to me but that is a total guess. All the inside of the drawers are black lacquer.
The 3rd photo above has what I think is a signature in the lower right drawer inlay work.
I would love to know what-the-heck it was used to hold, when it was made & who made it. Not asking for much, am I (lol)? The inlay really is fantastic and looks like months, if not years of work.
