19th Century Korean Bandaji chest from Jeolla Province. The beautiful zelkova wood has developed a gorgeous golden hue over the years. The fine metalwork includes rare brass knobs, and ironwork filled with ancient symbolism: the swallowtail hinges are a symbol of beauty, the chrysanthemums are a symbol of plenty or fertility (because of their many petals), and the wan (the wheel of life and symbol of universal peace and harmony) is so ancient it actually predates Buddhism and originally represented the revolving sun. In Buddhism it represents the Heart of the Buddha, happiness, and resignation of spirit. 38w x 18d x 21.5h inches, 96w x 46d x 55h cm.
