Korean Antique Painted Box with six sides and Beautiful Rural Scenery featuring lovely costumes and customs of the time. These types of boxes are very rare because they were made only during a very short period of time at the very end of the Joseon Dynasty, in the last decade of the 19th Century and first decade of the 20th Century (1890s and 1900s). The paintings are custom made for the boxes and are then mounted onto the boxes. Similar examples of painted boxes can be seen in the book, Korean Furniture and Culture (pages 85 and 86) by Yoon Bokcha, Chi Soon, and Park Youngsoon; and Korean Collection, University of Michigan Museum of Art (page 273). This box has a lovely new Korean turtle lock. 7.75 x 7.75 x 7 inches, 20 x 20 x 18 cm.

19th Century Korean Wood Spool (Silpae) for winding and unwinding thread for embroidery and sewing. The form and design of this spool makes it one of the most beautiful antique Korean spools we have ever seen.
