Gorgeous Hinged Basket with Red Lacquered Trim
SOLD

Gorgeous Hinged Basket (Gori) with Red Lacquered Trim. An exquisite Korean basket filled with auspicious symbolism: chrysanthemum hinges for a fruitful life, a Ssanghee (symbol of happiness and the sharing of joy in marriage, which expands to union of Heaven and Earth and Yin and Yang) is woven on the lid and inside on the bottom, auspicious floral designs on the lid, and a pullocho mythical longevity plant for the lock clasp. A flowing sense of continuity is achieved by the repeated and mirrored use of the 'ryul' character throughout the red lacquered area. 11 x 9 x 5.5 inches, 28 x 23 x 14 cm.
