Rare 19th Century Black Lacquered Box with Mother-of-Pearl River and Mountain Landscape and Plum Blossoms (the plum blossom is a symbol of courage because it blooms early, before winter is quite finished). For centuries in Korea, a rendering of a mountain and river (called Sansu in Korean) is more than a beautiful landscape; it is also a profound philosophical and spiritual statement. Heaven, Earth, and Humanity are represented, by the mountain, river, and human figures, respectively. 18w x 10.5d x 10h inches, 45.75w x 26.5d x 25.5h cm.
