I bought this cabinet from an antique store and glued the pieces down again. It is built like a Rubens Cube. I buffed the wood back to its original state. The wood showed oxidation of over 100 years and all the glue had crystallized. It is now resorted to a solid state after my inspection. There is a old Oriental calendar pasted inside it. It was adhered with rice glue. I reinforced it with lacquer to withstand time.

I built a new shelf with pine inside. The former user used it for a media cabinet and there is a hole in the back. The shelf I installed allows a by-pass in the back for wiring. Some of the drawers have natural borings which identify it as a true antique. I can stain the new shelf dark, but for now it is a Scandinavian blonde as a fresh surface . The shelf slates allow disassemble. I cut them tight so they stay in place without hardware, not to disturb the antique.

The face has a floral arrangement of mother of pearl on both panels. I love rose wood, but most of all, I love mother of Pearl. I clamped this cabinet in all directions and restored it to its original shape. If you need this service on your Tansu collection, feel free to contact me.

This Tansu cabinet is appraised over 3.6K in material, utility, condition and age
