A tall chest with four main cabinet doors, two on top and two on bottom, and four smaller drawers on the top. Each door is fitted with brass hinges and accent pieces. The wood is multi colored, light brown and dark brown.<br />
<br />
Produced to store clothes, chests were generally kept in the lady&rsquo;s quarter (<em>anbang</em> ) of a house and used by women. The front panels are made from persimmon wood, while the top, sides and back are made from pine wood. The top panel is made from a single piece of wood with moldings attached to give a sleek design. The side panels extend to the back, and the back panel was joined to the side panels at a perpendicular angle. The top and side panels are joined by three tenons and mortises. The rail of the first and second levels are attached to the side panels by mortise-and-tenon joints. The borders of the doors on the first level are inlaid with blacklines. Rim decoration <em>ogeumte</em> has been added to the part under the lower crossbar which is supported by a

A wide, shallow wooden bowl used for pounding large amounts of rice.<br />
<br />
This large bowl (<em>hamji</em> ) was made by cutting a large, single piece of wood along the grain, then hollowing it out. It follows traditional form and style, but it has adz marks and traces of smoothing the surface by scorching with fire. This item appears not to be the work of an expert, but a homemade item. The brim is thin in comparison to the overall width and depth.

The metal fittings on the chest are vert dark, and the front latch is attached to the chest with a circular piece of metal, and the latch itself is a thin piece of metal placed vertically. A small metal handle is located below this. The wood is a dark red color, and the papered front depicts flowers, with the predominant color being yellow. Orange is also used in some of the flowers, and on the circular shapes spaced along the bottom of the image. The outlines of the flowers and other images are painted in black.<br />

This chest is papered over wooden frame. It has been repaired following partial damage to the rear hinges, the base, front panel and the paper decoration on the left and the right. The wooden frame is joined by butt joints and not miter joints, following the trend which was popular during the Japanese annexation of the Korean Peninsula. The box is therefore assumed to have been produced at this time, then repaired later. None of its orig

This wood-carved fly-whisk bears a standing female figure whose narrow, cylindrical, and elongated torso doubles as its handle. Geometric and diamond shaped scarification patterns of leaden inlay, worn smooth due to extended use, decorate the head and body while her right arm extends to reach the top of her head; the left arm is missing. A patterned, red cotton wrap marks the transition zone between the figure's torso and the buffalo hair below. In effect, the buffalo hair visually acts as a grass skirt completing the above figure's body and dress.
