Lovely Korean Antique Painted Box with Flowers, Rocks, and Butterfly. These types of boxes are very rare because they were made only during a very short period of time at the very end of the Joseon Dynasty, in the last decade of the 19th Century and first decade of the 20th Century (1890s and 1900s). The paintings are custom made for the boxes and are then mounted onto the boxes. Similar examples of painted boxes can be seen in the book, Korean Furniture and Culture (pages 85 and 86) by Yoon Bokcha, Chi Soon, and Park Youngsoon; and Korean Collection, University of Michigan Museum of Art (page 273). 7 x 7 x 7 inches, 18 x 18 x 18 cm.

Fine Example of an Antique Korean Honey Jar with Beautiful, Rich Color. This is a Joseon Dynasty Sokganju (Oja) Honey Jar. It is well-proportioned and has twelve facets which were cut with a bamboo potter's knife. These add a sculptered quality to its otherwise globular shape. The famous 20th century Japanese potter Hamada Shoji (1894-1977) admired the cut facets on Korean ceramics and imitated them in his own work. These jars are known as Ame-Yu in Japan, where they are widely admired. These jars are ame-glazed, a dark brown glaze with a molasses-like color and texture. Through Hamada, Korean-style faceting entered the work of several contemporary potters in the West. In addition to their decorative effect, Korean facets had a utilitarian function. They made it easier to bind the jar with straw twine to hold the lid on tight and preserve the honey or other foodstuff inside. Extra-tight packing is still called "honey-packing" in Korea today. Faceting was also used on Korean wine bottles but purely for visual effect. The walls of the vessel were thrown extra thick to allow the facets to be cut. A few small and common rim chips, as shown in the photos, but otherwise excellent condition. A similar jar is shown in the G. St G.M. Gompertz book, Korean Pottery & Porcelain of the Yi Period (Plate # 177). 7 inches (18cm) high x 7 inches (18cm) wide.
