Korean Scholar's Inkstone Box constructed entirely of paulownia wood, a very desirable wood for scholars and collectors because of its unique and beautiful grain and its natural bug repellent qualities. Below the inkstone compartment there is a larger compartment for holding what was called the scholar's four friends: brush, ink, paper, and inkstone. The inkstone box was a Korean scholar's most treasured item. This is a beautiful and fine example. Its simple, quiet beauty was perfect for the scholar's Confucian aesthetic, and will look great with any kind of decor. 12.5 x 8 x 8 inches, 32 x 20 x 20 cm.

This hat was displayed in an exhibition of antique Korean hats at the Korea Society, and was featured in the New York Times Style section. Fashion designers, such as Carolina Herrera, recognize the beauty and uniqueness of traditional Korean hats and have been using them as part of their ensembles. In the 19th Century, the Japanese called Korea 'The Land of Hats' because the Koreans had a hat for every occasion and every position in society. This is an Antique Korean Military Commander's Hat (Chonrip), a rare and beautiful find. There is a similar example in the Staatliche Museum in Berlin. You can see it in "The Korean Relics in Western Europe" (published by the Korea Foundation) on page 58. The chonrip is constructed by molding horsehair on a mold. It was worn by the army and navy commanders of each province, and by police chiefs, and by the directors of the military training institutes. This antique hat is being offered here at a price that is much lower than what it would cost to have it made by an artisan in Korea today. 12w x 4h inches, 30w x 10h cm.

In the 19th Century, the Japanese called Korea 'The Land of Hats' because the Koreans had a hat for every occasion and every position in society. Old Korean Heungnip Scholar's Hat (Gat) made of horsehair (from the horse's tail) with a bamboo brim and original silk chin straps. Nothing says 'Korean' more than a Heungnip, a traditional Korean Gentleman Scholar's Horsehair Hat. This heungnip has a nice curvature, sheen, and silhouette, the three things that you look at when judging the quality of a heungnip. Please see the last photo here to see the lacquered flower (jeongkot) on the crown of the hat. Most heungnip you will see today are not genuine antiques made of horsehair, but are imitations constructed of nylon or wire mesh. You have to see this heungnip in person to appreciate the fineness of the horsehair weaving. The horsehair is stiffened with pine resin, and dyed with black ink. It has had some repair done to the edge of the brim. This antique hat is being offered here at a price that is much lower than what it would cost to have it made by an artisan in Korea today. 10.5w x 4.5h inches, 16.5w x 11.5h 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.
