Description

A Korean blanket chest featuring decoration of stylized ornate hardware. This small chest is made of varnished natural wood. Dark hardware of various shapes and sizes adorn the front of this piece. These various pieces of hardware are carved with stippling patterns that remind one of traditional Korean motifs. Each hardware piece is nicely carved and shaped, especially the central piece. Brass bail handles on each side assist in moving. This blanket chest features one door that opens down from the top with hinges in the middle of the piece.

 

This creates a large opening at the top through which blankets could be deposited. This 19th century Korean blanket chest with carved ornate hardware would be an uncommon and impressive item in most rooms, as a decorative item or as a storage unit, perhaps to store bottles in a living room or blankets and pillows in a bedroom.
