Antique Korean Rice Cake Press Mold (Dasikpan) with Lovely Carved Chrysanthemums (Symbol of fertility because of its many petals) Plum Blossoms (symbol of courage because it bloom early, before winter in finished), and Bat (Symbol of happiness, because the Korean word for bat "bok" is a homonym for the word for happiness). A very nice example of Korean folk art. These were treasured by Joseon Dynasty wives. When they were not in use, they were on display in the kitchen. With the old hanging hook in the top, this will display beautifully and proudly. 15.5w x 3 inches, 39.5 x 7.5 cm.
