Orchids are an ancient Korean symbol of purity, modesty, and virtue. The rock symbolizes eternity, so the combination of orchids and rock have the meaning of eternal adherence to principle. Talented painters of orchids were and still are held in the highest regard. Though Daewongun (Prince Yi Ha Eung) is often cited as the greatest painter of orchids, most scholars now agree that it was Kim Eung Won aka Soho (1855-1921) who was painting many of the paintings for which Daewongun took credit and which Daewongun signed. Daewongun was, of course, a great painter of orchids, but most agree now that Kim Eung Won may deserve the title of greatest. His paintings sell for a fraction of the price of Daewongun's paintings, at least for now. That can be expected to change as the general public catches up with the scholarship on the subject. Ink on paper. Silk Scroll: 76 x 18.25 inches, 193 x 46.5 cm: Painting: 50 x 13 inches, 126 x 33 cm. (A much smaller Daewongun painting recently sold at Christie's for $12,500 on March 18, 2014).

A beautiful and historically important painting of the hermit saint, Dokseong, dated on the back 1884 (10th year of Guangxa). Dokseong (literally, Lonely Saint) is a frequently-depicted character in Korean religious paintings. His origins are shrouded in centuries of mystery. So this painting offers a priceless contribution to Korean history, art, and religion. The inscription on the front reads, Naban Jeonja Ui (the Korean name for Pindola Bharadjava), supporting the theory put forth by some scholars that Dokseong is based on the Indian arhat (Korean:nahan) Pindola Bharadvaja. 22.75 x 12.5 inches, 57.75 x 31.75 cm.

Antique Korean Munjado Painting of the Ancient Confucian Virtue of Trust. Munjado paintings are unique visual representations of the eight Confucian virtues, with the character for the word accompanied by creatively rendered images that symbolize that virtue. The character rendered here is 'shin', trust. On the right, the goose, symbol of fidelity because it mates for life, is carrying in its beak a message from the blue jay with a human head on the left. The goose is to deliver this message to King Mok to meet at the Jade Lake. The blue jay represents the Queen Mother of the West, Seowangmo. The mythical Queen Mother held a banquet every three thousand years where her guests would partake of the Magical Peaches of Immortality. The half-human half-bird sits atop a peach tree in bloom. The meaning here is that words in a message have meaning only when there is trust. A rare and beautiful work of Joseon era Korean folk art. 22.5 x 12.5 inches, 57 x 32 cm.

Korean Antique Blue Porcelain Fish Form Water Dropper. The fish was a Confucian and Buddhist symbol of tireless dedication and constant vigilance, because fish never close their eyes, even when they are sleeping. The water dropper was one of the Joseon Dynasty scholar's most prized possessions. He would use it to mix his ink when writing letters, painting, and writing poetry. A scholar's water dropper was a symbol of his refinement and good taste. In keeping with the Korean Confucian gentleman's aesthetic, artifice and colorful designs that catered to base instincts were to be avoided, while a natural and deep respect for nature was to be upheld. This lovely water dropper in a fish shape was likely treasured by its 19th Century owner. 3 X 2.5 X 1 inches, 7.5 x 6.5 x 2.5 cm.

Fine Example of an Antique Korean Honey Jar with Beautiful, Rich Color. This is a Joseon Dynasty Sokganju (Oja) Honey Jar. It is well-proportioned and has twelve facets which were cut with a bamboo potter's knife. These add a sculptered quality to its otherwise globular shape. The famous 20th century Japanese potter Hamada Shoji (1894-1977) admired the cut facets on Korean ceramics and imitated them in his own work. These jars are known as Ame-Yu in Japan, where they are widely admired. These jars are ame-glazed, a dark brown glaze with a molasses-like color and texture. Through Hamada, Korean-style faceting entered the work of several contemporary potters in the West. In addition to their decorative effect, Korean facets had a utilitarian function. They made it easier to bind the jar with straw twine to hold the lid on tight and preserve the honey or other foodstuff inside. Extra-tight packing is still called "honey-packing" in Korea today. Faceting was also used on Korean wine bottles but purely for visual effect. The walls of the vessel were thrown extra thick to allow the facets to be cut. A few small and common rim chips, as shown in the photos, but otherwise excellent condition. A similar jar is shown in the G. St G.M. Gompertz book, Korean Pottery & Porcelain of the Yi Period (Plate # 177). 7 inches (18cm) high x 7 inches (18cm) wide.

Korean Antique Painted Box with six sides and Beautiful Rural Scenery featuring lovely costumes and customs of the time. 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. Similar examples of painted boxes can be seen in the book, Korean Furniture and Culture (pages 85 and 86) by Yoon Bokcha, Chi Soon, and Park Youngsoon; and Korean Collection, University of Michigan Museum of Art (page 273). This box has a lovely new Korean turtle lock. 7.75 x 7.75 x 7 inches, 20 x 20 x 18 cm.
