Very Fine and Rare Antique Paktong Bowl and Stand. Paktong looks like silver, but it is actually a copper alloy with nickel and zinc. This piece has impeccable provenance, from the collection of Harold Stern, the former director of the Smithsonian Freer Gallery, and the author of the 1957 book, Masterpieces of Korean Art. Bowl: height 4.25 inches (11 cm), width 5 inches (12.5 cm); Stand: width 5.75 inches (14.5 cm).
