The people of Jeju Island have long had a distinctive culture that has given us art and antiques that are, like the island itself, simultaneously rough and beautiful. Treasured by collectors for their vigorous folksy character, antiquities of this quality from this sparsely populated island are rare. This 19th Century piece is a grain grinder made of volcanic rock and wood. With glass placed across the top, it makes a striking table. Diameter: 34 inches (86cm), height 17 inches (43cm).
