Extraordinary Korean cabinet in three stacking sections. Covered with inlay on a black lacquer ground. The front is very densely covered with scenes of rural Korea: scholars in gardens, farmers at work, maidens in pavilion windows, and lovely vignettes of mountains, and rivers with bridges and boats. Silver toned chased brass hardware includes many butterfly hinges and lock plates. The locks themselves are unusual in that they are round and made of chased brass as well as copper in the form of a yin and yang motif. The upper section of the chest has four small drawers along the top. Each section has a large compartment opened by two doors and is papered on the inside in a solid light blue.

Size: 68 1/2" high x 37 14" wide x 18 3/4" deep.
