Korean Bandaji Storage Chest Tansu White Brass Hardware
Vintage Korean front opening bandaji (storage chest) decorated with white brass hardware incised with fish and yin/yang designs. The front drops open to reveal three interior drawers and a removable shelf above a large hidden lower compartment. Complete with the original functioning key and lock, which is finely incised with a calligraphy motif. Side carrying handles. Appears to dates from the first half of the 20th century. 31 H x 38 W x 17D. Very good overall condition. The chains were added to the door before we acquired the chest apparently in order to hold the door in an open horizontal position. They are easily removeable. The central lockplate has a few minor dents.
