Rare 19th Century Korean Buddhist Scholar's Study Desk (Gyeongsang) constructed from fine zelkova wood. The upturned ends are not just aesthetically pleasing, they keep scrolls and other material from rolling off the table. The beautiful cabriolet legs include carved bamboo trunks. These desks were used in Buddhist temples for reading sutras, and came into use in the homes of scholars during the late Joseon Dynasty. 33w x 14.5d x 12.25h inches, 84w x 37d x 31h cm.
