Antique Korean Munjado Painting of the Ancient Confucian Virtue of Trust. Munjado paintings are unique visual representations of the eight Confucian virtues, with the character for the word accompanied by creatively rendered images that symbolize that virtue. The character rendered here is 'shin', trust. On the right, the goose, symbol of fidelity because it mates for life, is carrying in its beak a message from the blue jay with a human head on the left. The goose is to deliver this message to King Mok to meet at the Jade Lake. The blue jay represents the Queen Mother of the West, Seowangmo. The mythical Queen Mother held a banquet every three thousand years where her guests would partake of the Magical Peaches of Immortality. The half-human half-bird sits atop a peach tree in bloom. The meaning here is that words in a message have meaning only when there is trust. A rare and beautiful work of Joseon era Korean folk art. 22.5 x 12.5 inches, 57 x 32 cm.

Orchids and Rock Painting by Yang Ki Hun aka Seokyeon (1843-1897) from Pyeongyang. Yang Ki Hun is famous for his geese paintings. Though the orchid is one of the favorite subjects of the Korean scholar artist, Yang Ki Hun rarely painted them. So this is a rare and fine piece by one of Korea's foremost artists. Orchids are an ancient Korean symbol of purity, modesty, and virtue. The rock symbolizes eternity, so the combination of orchids and rock have the meaning of eternal adherence to principle. Talented painters of orchids were and still are held in the highest regard. Yang Ki Hun was a member of the Royal Academy of Painting in the late 19th Century, toward the end of the Joseon Dynasty. He made a living by painting for the king and his court, and also by selling his paintings in Pyeongyang. He was the most well-known of the provincial painters who, because of the increase in the economic power of the provinces in the late 19th Century, and the accompanying demand for paintings, were able to make or supplement income by selling their paintings locally. Here are two great quotes from Yang Ki Hun's contemporary, the painter and calligrapher Chi Un Yeong (aka Paekryeon): "Yang Ki Hun's paintings stir up my jealousy because they seem completely freed from all ideas and restraints". And after Seokyeon (Yang Ki Hun) passed away, Chi Un Yeong wrote, "Seokyeon told me that when he stayed on Neungna Island for a few years some time ago. He was able to paint the scenery in a realistic way. His words still linger vividly in my ears. I remember playing with him thirty years ago in the Taedong River, and it seems so far away and dream-like." Ink on silk. Mounting: 65 x 18.75 inches, 165 x 47.5 cm; Painting: 52 x 13.75 inches, 132 x 35 cm.

Small Korean Coin Chest with Old Inscription Inside the Lid. Coin chests (Donkwe) are highly prized by collectors of Korean antiques. Paper money did not exist in Joseon Dynasty Korea, and the coins were of very small denominations.

Old Rustic Korean Coin Chest (Donkwe). Coin chests are highly prized by collectors of Korean antiques. Paper money did not exist in Joseon Dynasty Korea, and the coins were of very small denominations. They had to be strung together in large, heavy quantities to have any worth, so a strong money box was a necessity. Here's a funny quote from 1898 on Korean money by Mattie Ingold, an American missionary physician who worked in Jeonju: "If Korean money were proportionately as great in value as it is in weight and clumsiness, the Koreans would be a very wealthy people." 21w x 11h x 10.5d

Rare Antique Korean Hat Box. Joseon Dynasty hat boxes are so rare, that this is the only one we have ever had. This is a fine and beautifully constructed example. The original owner inscribed his name into the lid of the box, a very nice touch that adds to the collectability of the piece. It is unlikely that you will ever again see an authentic Joseon Era Korean hat box offered for sale. 11.5 x 11.5 x 8.5 inches, 29 x 29 x 21.5 cm.

The classic yongmok samcheung-jang (Korean zelkova root chest with three levels) is probably the most-widely imitated type of Korean antique chest among the reproductions that are all over the internet. This exquisite and genuine 19th Century Joseon Dynasty yongmok samcheung-jang will surely be the showcase piece in any collection. Yongmok is zelkova root, and literally translates to dragon burlwood, which describes the shapes of dragons that can be seen in the very fancy grain of the zelkova root. This chest is a particularly rare and fine example in exceptionally good condition. 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. The effect is quite stunning. The other sides are constructed of a fine wide-grained paulownia wood. The stand is carved in the shape of a bat, an ancient Korean symbol of good fortune, because bat and good fortune share the same pronunciation. Other than the cheaply-made reproductions of these that you see all over the internet (most of which are dishonestly described as antiques and are not even made in Korea), it is unlikely that you will see another genuine Joseon Dynasty Dragon Burlwood Three-Level Chest for sale, other than in Korea, where it will sell for multiples of this price. We receive emails almost weekly from factories in China that sell the reproductions very cheaply. Unlike some other dealers, we have never accepted these offers. There's nothing like the look of rare and exotic zelkova root that has aged for over 100 years. Unlike the reproductions, this genuine article will last for generations and the beauty of the old wood will only deepen and increase with age, making it a fine heirloom for a proud family. 64h x 43w x 20.75d inches, 162.5h x 109w x 52.75d cm.

Oil Painting by Jeon Joon Yeop. 29 x 21 inches, 73 x 53 cm. Jeon Joon Yeop (born 1953) is a well-known artist in South Korea, with numerous art reviews. He was the top-selling artist in last year’s Korea International Art Fair, Korea’s biggest art fair. Instead of finding comfort in his successes, Jeon accepts popularity as a challenge to further explore how to speak the ancient language of Korean landscape painting with a modern vocabulary of techniques, such as pouring, scratching, spreading, soaking, smudging, blowing, and densely recoating oil paint onto the canvas. Another seemingly modern technique that Jeon employs, the presentation of multiple viewpoints in a single painting, is actually an ancient technique in East Asian painting. Jeon even adds the viewpoint of the person in the painting, creating an attachment for the viewer of the painting so that the landscape is not objective and detached, thus keeping, and sharing, the Korean traditional subjective and harmonious view of nature.

Rare Painted Ceramic Plate by Park No Soo (1927-2013), a contemplative piece that rewards repeated and meditative viewing. Painted ceramics by Park No Soo are rare, and this fine example is particularly rare and very important, as it was the only one created to commemorate the opening of the Seoul Arts Center in 1988, the year of the Olympics in Seoul. The original certificate accompanies this piece. Just the first page of a google search reveals Park No Soo's international renown, as well as the adoration he receives locally in Korea. His minimal style and palette is instantly recognizable, and this beautiful painting is a fine example of his inimitable, expressive brushwork. The Park No Soo Museum opened in 2013 in Seoul's Jongno District, Jongno's first public museum. Park No Soo was a student of Yi Sang Beom, who was a student of An Jung Sik, who was a student of Jang Seung Eop, the very best possible lineage of Korean art royalty. The plate itself was potted by Yang Jong Wha (born 1941). It is a large and deep plate, 12.75 inches (32.5cm) wide by 2 inches (5cm) deep.

19th Century Korean Twelve-Sided Tiger Leg (Cabriole Leg) Personal Dining Table (Soban) of Ginkgo Wood from Gyeongsang Province. In Joseon Dynasty Korea, meals were served to individuals in their rooms on these personal dining tables. There is an identical table in the book that is the bible of Korean antique furniture, Traditional Korean Furniture (page 82, photo 89) by my friend and mentor, Man Sill Pai. She elaborates on this type of soban in her book, Dining Tables published by Ewha University Press. She says, "These tiger-legged soban tables (hojok-ban) have strong legs of aggressive lines sharply pinched in at the ankles. The plates were made of a single piece of plank and the legs, with their well-shaped calves and thin ankles, were fixed into unobtrusive aprons. Tiger-legged tables were favored for ritual use in the royal palace." 17.5 inches (44.5 cm) wide x 11 inches (28 cm) tall.
