Early to mid 19th century altar style Bandaji cabinet. Original Brass hardware with three drawers along the upper section. You could see carved crane with pine on the brass. This kind of delicate work is only seen on old cabinets. The Korean name bandaji (means “half close”) derives from the hinged door in the front of this chest. This type of chest was one of the most essential 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 is why we call it a “”blanket chest”” in English). This altar style cabinet, with its decorated fittings and metalwork, was produced in the northern provinces of the Korean peninsula.
In good condition. Originally from Korea.
