This box has a mirror attached to the inside of its lid and was used by women. The box is decorated with hexagon and bamboo motifs by employing <em>kkeuneumjil</em> and <em>jureumjil</em> techniques. Hinges made of nickel are decorated with chiseled peonies on a ringmat ground. The corner brackets, or side wrappers, are in &ldquo;I&rdquo; shape. The single drawer has a handle in the shape of a bat, realistic to the extent of depicting antenna. Lacquer was heavily repainted on the base of the drawer. The frame of the mirror inside was decorated with fret-patterned band on left and right sides, and saw-tooth design on upper and lower sides.
