Old Rustic Korean Coin Chest (Donkwe). Coin chests are highly prized by collectors of Korean antiques. Paper money did not exist in Joseon Dynasty Korea, and the coins were of very small denominations. They had to be strung together in large, heavy quantities to have any worth, so a strong money box was a necessity. Here's a funny quote from 1898 on Korean money by Mattie Ingold, an American missionary physician who worked in Jeonju: "If Korean money were proportionately as great in value as it is in weight and clumsiness, the Koreans would be a very wealthy people." 21w x 11h x 10.5d

Dhyangro drums are usually separated from their phurba (ritual dagger) handles, and the handles are sold by themselves. This is a common occurrence with Nepali dealers. This is because the handles are easier to transport and sell. So it isn't very often that you see a completely intact, old Tibetan ritual drum. The drum is made of wood and animal hide, and has shaking balls inside for accenting the rhythms created by the shaman dancer. The handle is a wonderfully carved wood phurba (ritual dagger) with multiple faces. An old and beautiful piece that displays nicely. From the collection of Sam Hilu, prominent collector and author on Asian and African art. 26 x 15 x 5 inches, 66 x 38 x 13 cm.

This truly deluxe Korean ironing board is the finest example we have seen of an embroidered ironing board, and is filled with imaginatively rendered symbolism. It was believed that ducks mate for life, so ducks are an ancient symbol of fidelity, and the lotus are a symbol of purity and rebirth, because the lotus rises above the muck of the pond to show its face to the Sun. 22.5 x 6.5 inches (57 x 16.5 cm).

Its simple, quiet beauty was perfect for the scholar's Confucian aesthetic, and will look great with any kind of decor.

Chaekgeori, paintings depicting books and scholar's items, are abundant with symbols of diligence, motivation, good fortune and virtue. Chaekgeori are uniquely Korean, despite the fact that many of the items depicted in a Chaekgeori are Chinese. The Joseon Dynasty Korean scholar had much respect for Chinese art and learning, but expressed that admiration in a uniquely Korean manner through Chaekgeori. We see items here that indicate refined comfort, but more important than the sense of gentility that is conveyed, is the ideal of self-improvement to which everyone could aspire: rich or poor, young or old. Though the items depicted were not readily available to the poor, the Chaekgeori could inspire them nonetheless. Adults enjoyed them, but they would also be placed in children's rooms to teach them the value and beauty of culture and learning. French artists as early as the 1880's saw ideas in this genre that they imported into their own art. Frame: 29 x 16.75 inches, 73.5 x 42.5 cm; Painting: 23.75 x 11.5 inches, 60.5 x 29 cm. Mineral pigments on old hand-woven silk.
