A large flower-shaped center medallion with etched flowering trees dominates the front and contains the locking mechanism (original key included).

The upper portion unlocks to reveal a drop front desk with two drawers and slots for office papers. Latter Choson period (1392–1910), 19th or early 20th century. DIMENSIONS: 47.5' high 'x 30' wide 'x19'' deep.
