Tansu in the Movies

A Cho bako sea chest from Shibui may possibly have a supporting role in the new Warner Bros. film “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close” starring Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock.

Tansu have played roles in several movies and TV shows throughout the years. A few of my favorites have been the Kannon Biraki in the Hitchcock film “Rear Window” with Jimmy Stewart, and the Osaka clothing chest in “Fearless” with Jeff Bridges and Isabella Rossilini.

If you know of other Tansu in the movies we would love to hear about them.
