One-of-a-kind 19th Century Korean Hat Box made entirely of Exotic Paulownia (Odong-namu) Wood. Paulownia is very desirable for collectors because of its beautiful wide grain, light wight, and fire and bug-resistant qualities. Hat boxes of this size and of paulownia wood are very rare. This may be the only one in the West that is not in a museum. 9 (height) x 8 x 8 inches, 23 x 20 x 20 cm.
