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.

Fine and Beautifully Embroidered Spoon and Chopstick Case (Sujeohjip) with peonies (symbol of prosperity), butterfly (happiness), bamboo (integrity), pine tree (longevity), and the mythical bullocho longevity plant. The deer and cranes are longevity symbols, and when they are paired like this, they are symbols of eternal love. The spoon symbolizes sustenance and life, so it was appropriate for it to be kept in such a beautiful embroidered case. This wonderful spoon and chopstick case is further adorned with silk tassels and a nice example of Madeup, the Korean art of knotting. The characters on the back translate to "five blessings for one hundred years". It must have been a proud possession of a Korean housewife many years ago. 10 x 4 inches, 25.5 x 10 cm.
