Korean Art and Antiques
SOLD
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).

Joseon Dynasty Ton-kwe (Korean Coin Chest). Coin chests are highly prized by collectors, as their purpose required that they be the largest, heaviest, and most well constructed piece of furniture in the home of an aristocrat. Paper money did not exist in Yi Dynasty Korea, and the coins were of very small denominations. They had to be strung together in large quantities to have any worth, so a strong money box was obviously a necessity...

SOLD
A high ranking official rides a mythical chilin rendered as a wonderfully lumpy animal in this mid 19th century Chosen (Yi) Dynasty painting. The official carries incense and is followed by a servant carrying a staff. They travel on a cloud and have clouds in front of them. The work is unsigned, characteristic of Korean folk art, which was commissioned to represent a family's specific hopes for the future...

Silk Road Gallery
SOLD
We found this beautifully grained, partially hollowed tree trunk in Korea, where it was used to pound rice. With the addition of a glass top, it has been transformed into a table with lots of charm and a story to tell. Age is difficult to establish on such an item but we were told, and the amount of wear corroborates, that this tree trunk became a rice pounding table sometime during the late 19th century. The wood also is difficult to identify with certainty...

Made of luminous elm wood, this early 20th century two-piece Korean cabinet originated in South Chwengchung Province. The larger top part of the stackable chest, used for hanging overcoats and long skirts, has two wide doors to allow full access to the generous space. The bottom portion has two compartments, one with a hasp that could be locked over the horizontally hinged fold-down door; the other compartment with three deep drawers. The two parts of the cabinet can be used separately...
Korean : Paintings : Pre 1837 VR item #281376 (stock #53-52)
Silk Road Gallery
SOLD
Painted in the early 19th century by Suk Chun, this work symbolizes the venerated Korean theme of long life. The ancient pine tree is an emblem of longevity, and the old sage, with his prominent high brow and hairless crown, bears a strong resemblance to Canopus, the star god of longevity. This is a quiet painting, dominated by the wonderful pine that is made more compelling because we see only a part of it. The face of the scholar is all about dignity and discipline with just a hint of humor...

The Kura
Sold, Thank you
A large Korean Buncheong (Pun-Chong) pottery bottle from the Joseon period (16th-17th century) covered in a creamy white glaze decorated on the flat sides with exaggerated floral scrolls on a dark ground; carved ringlets filled with dark slip on the sides. Color built up over the centuries fills the crackled glaze. The foot ring is rough with sand and excess glaze, and occasional windows in the glaze about the foot reveal the dark clay beneath. The vase is 8-1/2 inches (21 cm) tall, and comes...
Korean : Pre 1900 item #275794 (stock #53-58)
Silk Road Gallery
SOLD
This mid 19th century Korean munjado folk painting represents the Confucian value of honor and justice. Ink and slight color on paper, it is matted with silk and framed with a traditional Korean rounded frame. The ideograph, called munjado, is a stylized graphic rendering of a Chinese character. Chinese characters, rather than Korean Hangul characters, were used in Korean arts for many years after the country's official language became Hangul. This particular character may have been used to rep...
Korean : Paintings : Pre 1900 item #271873 (stock #22-07)
Silk Road Gallery
SOLD
This delicately executed mountain landscape is signed and sealed by the Yi Dynasty Korean painter Lim Sam. Ink and slight color on silk, it dates to mid 19th century and depicts a warm country scene in front of a soaring forested mountain. A snug house with soft light in the windows suggests early evening and is apparently the destination of a lone figure on the back of a water buffalo crossing a small bridge. Fine ink lines and muted color produce a restful effect. A tone on tone silk mat and p...
