Rare Pair of 19th Century Tiger-Legged Dining Tables of Ginkgo Wood from Gyeongsang Province. There is an identical table in the book that is the bible of Korean antique furniture, Traditional Korean Furniture (page 82, photo 89) by my friend and mentor, Man Sill Pai. She elaborates on this type of soban in her book, Dining Tables published by Ewha University Press. She says, "These tiger-legged soban tables (hojok-ban) have strong lines sharply pinched in at the ankles. The plates were made of a single piece of plank and the legs, with their well-shaped calves and thin ankles, were fixed into unobtrusive aprons. Tiger-legged tables were favored for ritual use in the royal palace." One table is in very good condition, and the other table needs repair. 15.5w x 10.25h inches, 39.5w x 26h cm.

A Very Rare 19th Century Korean Black Lacquered Mother of Pearl Soban (individual dining table), with cranes (symbols of immortality, and eternal love when they are paired, as they are here), pine tree (symbol of longevity), orchids (symbol of purity and modesty), bullocho (the mythical longevity plant) and bamboo (symbol of resilience).

Joseon Dynasty Ton-kwe (Korean Coin Chest). Coin chests are highly prized by collectors, as their purpose required that they be the largest, heaviest, and most well constructed piece of furniture in the home of an aristocrat. Paper money did not exist in Yi Dynasty Korea, and the coins were of very small denominations. They had to be strung together in large quantities to have any worth, so a strong money box was obviously a necessity. This is a very heavy and likely the most impressive authentic antique Korean coin chest you will ever see for sale. This massive and handsome coin chest must have belonged to a very wealthy family. 19.5 x 56 x 29 inches, 49.5 x 142 x 74 cm.
