Subject:Rare METAL Kodansu Cabinet Meiji Period, unopened box ?
Posted By: Isaac Peat Sun, Feb 23, 2020 IP: 220.127.116.11
Hi all, I have a metal kodansu cabinet, which I believe is from the Meiji period.
As far as my research has led me to believe, most kodansu cabinets were made from wood and this is unusually metal? I'd love to know more about this object whether it is about the markings on the sides or materials it might be made of, period, possible area it was made, details about kodansu cabinets? All would greatly help me.
However the great mystery is how does it open ? I currently have not figured out a way to open this box. It has a gold coloured metal "nob" (I don't know what the object is supposed to be) on the side which can be turned and clearly looks like it should be opened. I can't seem to push it up or down in any direction however. Anyway any help on this would be greatly appreciated and very exciting.
Thanks in advance,
Please let me know if you need more photos etc.
