Rare Antique Korean Doll Couple with exact details in the costumes of that era (late 19th Century). These were used in rituals. This is an exceptional example, with very personal features, such as the woman's swollen cheek bones and pursed lips, and the man's introspective eyes, that go well with their bent postures from many years of living a full life. It is rare to find dolls from this era that are so artistically and beautifully rendered with so much heart-warming emotion. It is equally rare to find a man with an original walking stick. 8.5 inches, 21.5 cm.

SOLD
A very fine example of a Joseon Dynasty Korean tiger hunting painting, that makes use of the best quality pigments and finest silk, and is rendered with the highest level of artistry and skill, likely by a painter from the royal court. A similar painting recently sold at auction in Korea for $5500. Unique to Korea, almost all Korean hunting paintings depict hunters in Mongolian costume. In spite of the Mongols' brutal occupation of Korea in the 13th Century, Koreans maintained great admiration for Mongolian hunting and equestrian skills. This painting is one of a pair. The other painting is on this website (Stock #1186). Scroll: 50 x 17 inches (127 x 43 cm); Painting: 27 x 13 inches (68.5 x 33 cm).

Exquisite Lotus Form Celadon Saucer with the most desirable sea-green color found only in 12th Century Korean celadon. This is the color that inspired the Chinese to refer to Korean celadon as "first under Heaven". The Korean love of forms from nature is evident here in the graceful foliate shape of this saucer. The raised receptacle is a carved and incised upturned lotus, the Buddhist symbol of purity and rebirth. The beautiful blue-green celadon glaze has pooled deeply in the carving of the upturned lotus, creating a stunning contrast with the surrounding lighter glaze. This masterfully designed saucer has ten petals forming the rim, with incised camellias (symbol of faithfulness and longevity) within each petal separated by a deeply carved line between each petal. Each petal has an interior curve that forms another ten-petaled flower within the outer flower, with a deeply recessed interior adorned with a beautifully incised seascape and a fish. The fish, because it never closes its eyes (even when it sleeps), is a symbol of eternal vigilance. The saucer sits atop a gorgeous ten-petaled floral base with lotus leaves incised into each petal. An altogether beautiful masterpiece of Korean celadon art. There is a small dot of old gold lacquer repair to the rim. Serious collectors know that old, native gold lacquer repairs actually add to the value. 5.75w x 2.5h inches, 14.5w x 6.5h cm.
