Very Rare Pair of Korean Black Lacquer Mother-Of-Pearl Mungap (Stationery Chest). 'Mun' means things pertaining to culture, and 'gap' means low chest. These chests were given this name because they were used as a repository for items related to cultural life, such as rolls of paper, brushes, ink sticks and ink stones. One door lifts out, and then other doors can slide over and lift out. Dimensions of each chest: 18h x 38w x 11.5d inches, 45.75h x 96.5 x 29.25 cm.
