This exquisite Samchung-jang (Korean Three Level Chest) will surely be the showcase piece in any collection. The highest standards of traditional Korean refinement were applied to the design and construction of this masterwork of dragon burlwood (zelkova root). On the rare occasion when you do see an old and fine Korean chest of zelkova, it is always just the panels that are of zelkova, while the frame is pine. This rare chest actually uses zelkova for both the panels and the frame, so that the entire front is zelkova. Even the base is entirely zelkova. Quite stunning! The sides and back are of a fine paulownia wood. 66.25h x 42.5w x 20.5d inches, 168.5h x 108w x 52d cm.
