Miniature antique Japanese piece, Meiji cabinet. For dollhouses.

Miniature antique Japanese piece, Meiji cabinet. For dollhouses.

My finest piece of furniture I ever made. More than a month about researching and learning about Japanese furniture of Meiji period and many hours of designing and making the cabinet. You can see the result: Unique OOAK miniature.

I love Japanese history, but I specially love the Meiji period, when Japan opened to the world and received all influences (furniture included) This cabinet has been designed as a personal request for something I love: drawers. Furniture filled with drawers, doors and holes are superb. So I started with the goal of making a Japanese typical cabinet with assymetric display.

The entire piece has three parts.

The lower part has two drawers, decorated with traditional XIX century Japanese paintings. You can see at photos how I used very very thin wood, because I don't like miniatures with drawers made with thick wood, I see them not real.

The middle part is a wide cabinet with doors covered with the same paintings as drawers. Also made from thin wood, you can open and close them. Corners was made from brass.

The upper part is my favourite one. A tiny combination od different drawers and holes, made for storing books. You can see how two of the drawers is only 3mm in height, really tiny.

Every miniature has an story behind it. I imagined this cabinet was used by a high lord of Japan. Maybe the main chief of war supplies. Then i started researching about information of Japanese documents. Finally, I could make a bunch of real documents about contracts between Japan and US for purchasing weapons. You can see them at photos, and this cabinet includes them. Also I thought that he likes art, so I made rice paper books depicting drawings and emakimono (very long scrolls where you can read an story) Finally I added yen banknote (first banknotes of Japan) and some gems for trading purposes.
