Antique Japanese Ship Safe


A merchants safe, which in Japan is referred to as a "Fune Tansu". These safes were often used to become mobile storage departments for valuables such as gold, money and any personal items of significant value used among the elitist, feudal lords and businesses. The box is distressed from being stored in a barn in Japan for potentially over a 100 years which have traces of wood lice holes in some parts. The insects are no longer in the piece and is commonly found in wooden antiques coming from Japan. This tends to add character in some pieces so please understand this prior to making the purchase.

Unfortunately Pack & Track is currently offered to the following destinations: USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Germany, Spain and Israel.    

All remaining destinations will be posted with the ‘Registered Airfreight’ service as we do not want to risk the package getting lost and being untraceable.
