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. The butterfly is a symbol of happiness, and is often paired with the peony flower, an ancient symbol of prosperity. The lotus blossom is a symbol of purity and rebirth, because it rises above the muck of the pond to show its face to the Sun. A beautifully and meticulously embroidered work of art. 16 x 3.5 inches, 40.5 x 9 cm.

19th Century Korean Embroidered Pillow End overflowing with symbols of abundant joy and love, in an Exotic Paulownia Wood Frame. Because they mated for life, the cranes are a symbol of eternal fidelity; the mountains, pine tree and waves of the sea are all symbols of longevity, as are the two mythical bullocho longevity plants that are between the two cranes; the plum blossom is a symbol of courage; the clouds are a symbol of Heaven; and the cherry blossom symbolizes the arrival of spring and renewal. The person for whom this was designed many years ago must have been very much loved. Paulownia wood frames are valued for their beautiful wide grain and their insect-repelling qualities. Frame: 9.5 x 9.5 inches, 24 x 24 cm; Pillow End: 6 x 6 inches, 15.25 x 15.25 cm.

Late 14th/Early 15th Century Rare and Important Early Buncheong Bowl with Black and White Slip Inlaid geese (symbol of faithfulness), cranes (symbol of faithfulness and longevity), and orchids (symbol of modesty and purity). This is an important piece because it was created right on the cusp between Goryeo Dynasty celadon and Joseon Dynasty buncheong, and has elements of both, making it a rare transitional piece. The inlay is from the Goryeo Period, but the brushed white slip encircling the bowl is from the Joseon Period. This is the only transitional piece we have ever offered for sale, so this is a very rare opportunity to nicely complete a Korean ceramics collection. The delightful inlaid motifs have a rare feel of both the Goryeo and Joseon aesthetic, and the color of the bowl is a blend of the final phase of Goryeo celadon and the very earliest phase of Joseon buncheong. This extraordinary bowl beautifully and perfectly captures the transition as well as, and even better than, some of the rare transitional pieces you see in museums. 5.5w x 1.5h inches, 14w x 4h cm.
