Antique Korean Box Painted with Butterfly and Flowers and Beautiful Rock, with Butterfly Handles. These types of boxes are very rare because they were made only during a very short period of time at the very end of the Joseon Dynasty, in the last decade of the 19th Century and first decade of the 20th Century (1890s and 1900s). The paintings are custom made for the boxes and are then mounted onto the boxes.
