The Honsu Ham (Korean Wedding Chest) was a wife's most proud possession, and was always placed high in a position of visual prominence in her room. This solidly constructed and handsome Honsu Ham is constructed entirely of exotic paulownia wood, and has a rich, striking grain. The iron lock plate is in the shape of a beautifully stylized pullocho, the ancient and mythical longevity plant. It will surely continue to enjoy the ancient tradition of a place of prominence in its new owner's proud home. 24w x 13.5h x 12.25d inches, 61w x 34.5h x 31d cm. This Paulownia Wood Wedding Chest pairs nicely with the Paper on Paulownia Wood Wedding Chest on this site (Stock #0012), as shown in the last photo here on this item.
