Antique Korean Bandaji chest or trunk featuring Zelkova elm frame with brass accents. The Korean name bandaji (literally meaning "half closing") derives from the hinged door in the front of this chest. This type of chest was one of the most essential, and most commonly found, pieces of furniture in a Korean household. Clothes, documents and valuables would be stored inside while folded blankets would be placed on top during the day (which explains why it is called a "blanket chest" in English). This chest, with its richly decorated fittings and extensive metalwork, was produced in the northern provinces of the Korean peninsula, mid nineteenth century; Kyong'gi Province, Joseon Dynasty (1392 - 1897).
Good antique condition, wear and distressing, finish loss on top, splitting, wear and patina to brass from age and use.
