Captured in wood, the epitome of superb Korean design in this short chest standing 31" tall, 24.75" wide, and 11" deep.

Completely hand-made, it is equally as attractive from the sides as from the front with its many small drawers, and compartments. Even the base, at the back has little shaped brackets extending from the feet. On the sides, the feet have long stretchers that extend from front to back and connect the feet. In addition to the rich, deep red wood,which is probably paulownia, the accents of brass, aged to a lovely patina, are equally compelling. Very simple handles grace the drawers, and more elaborate, circular door closures complete the package.

The design configuration features two sets of doors, one over the other. This type of small chest was usually found in the women's quarters, and those with two sets of doors are uncommon and probably used when the man of the house visited the room of his wife. The chest is very light, easily picked up by me, an average-sized woman. This chest probably dates to the mid to late 1800s.

Buyer may pick this item up at one of my antique mall locations or can have it professionally packed and shipped to their home address.
