|Rare and Finely Embroidered Apron from North Korea. You can see the Red Star of North Korea as the centerpiece of this stunning embroidered apron. The style of embroidery in North Korea is quite different from the south. Look especially at the way the fish and birds are rendered on the apron here, a masterpiece of Korean folk embroidery. Even the species of bird (in the center of the apron) looks different from anything in South Korea. The apron has seven pockets and is 20w x 18h inches, 51w x 46h cm.|
