Fine and Beautifully Embroidered 19th Century Korean Ironing Board from the renowned, published, and exhibited Lea Sneider textiles collection. 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).

Rare Embroidered Korean Antique Child's Belt (Dolddi) with Sipjangsaeng, the traditional ten symbols of longevity: Sun, mountains, cranes, bamboo, tortoise, pine tree, water, bullocho, clouds, and deer. When the deer, tortoise, and crane are paired, as they are here, they are also a symbol of eternal love. The bamboo is a symbol of integrity and resilience, because it bends in a strong wind and returns to its upright position.

This pair of pillow ends is the oldest Korean embroidery we have ever found for sale, about 200 years old, from the early 19th Century. Please look especially at the close-up photos to appreciate the very fine technique employed in the details of this marvelous and rare pair. The peonies are a symbol of love and prosperity, and the butterflies are a symbol of happiness. Only very old fabric has such warm colors, and only the old embroiderers would have had the dedication and work ethic required to render such a masterpiece of early Korean embroidery. Each pillow end is 6 inches (15cm) wide.

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.

This finely embroidered bojagi is the oldest bojagi we have ever had. It would have been used as a beautiful way of covering food. The thick paper lining would protect both the food and the cloth. The loop handle on the top would be used to remove the bojagi from the dining table, and could be used to carry the bojagi, after neatly folding it as shown in the second photo here. Peonies, a symbol of prosperity, adorn the center. Azaleas, one of Korea's most beloved flowers, adorn each corner of this heart-warming bojagi. Azaleas often appear in Korean art and literature, and is the chosen symbol of many Korean cities. 19 x 19 inches, 48 x 48 cm.
