19th Century Korean Twelve-Sided Tiger Leg (Cabriole Leg) Personal Dining Table (Soban) of Ginkgo Wood from Gyeongsang Province. In Joseon Dynasty Korea, meals were served to individuals in their rooms on these personal dining tables. 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 legs of aggressive 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." 17.5 inches (44.5 cm) wide x 11 inches (28 cm) tall.

19th Century Korean Black Lacquered Mother-Of-Pearl Soban Personal Dining Table in rare excellent condition. Filled with abundant ancient symbolism: The moon, cranes, clouds, and mythical bullocho plant are symbols of longevity; when the cranes are paired like this, they are a symbol of eternal love; the plum blossoms are a symbol of courage because they bloom early, when winter is not quite finished yet; the orchids are are symbol of virtue; and the bamboo is a symbol of wisdom and resilience, because in a strong wind, rather than stubbornly stand firm, which can cause it to break, it wisely bends with the wind. Beautifully carved on all four sides are stylized peonies, ancient symbol of abundance. You are unlikely to find another mother-of-pearl table of this age and quality in this remarkable condition. 14 x 11 x 8.5 inches, 35.5 x 28 x 21.6 cm.
