Hundred Eye' Chest, Black Lacquer

Shimu

http://www.shimu.co.uk

This modern day black lacquer version has larger drawers for more practical use, each one being ideal to hold CDs and DVDs. Multi drawer medicine chests for holding herbs and other remedies, were used throughout China by apothecaries and pharmacists. The larger ones were referred to as hundred eye chests (or 'bei yau chu' in Chinese) due to the multitude of drawers. The sixteen drawers can hold approximately 400 CDs or use in a bedroom for socks or cosmetics. Made from solid elm with dovetailed drawers and brass ring pull handles. As one Chinese scholar wrote, a drawer is a place that copes with idleness and hides incompetence and we think this piece offers a beautiful way to get organised.
