This Antique Korean piece can be seen at: Timeless Antiques & Flea Mall Valley, AL Also known as a wedding chest. Each chest has four small pull drawers at the top and two centered cupboard doors with ornate brass hinges. Yi Dynasty, mid 19th century, at best. Height 58inches, Depth 19 inches, Length 37 inches. This is a charming piece, one of the three main types of Korean furniture. They are actually quite difficult to date, as many old pieces were restored or 'rebuild' during the past sixty years to supply demand for this type of furniture. However, they are quite decorative and would suit in any interior. For the age of the chest it is a beautiful work of art. The chest has not been restore, but support has been added to the legs. _____________________________________________________ October 2, 1965 an article written by E. D. Alexander on MAJ. Jennings, professor of military science antique he owned. He returned from the Orient in June 1965 bringing his collection gathered in Korea and Japan. In the newspaper pictures is one of the collection from Korea. The article state the chest is 150 years old in 1965. This would mean it is now 200 years old. I have a copy of the page of the newspaper article showing the picture of the chest with Mrs. Jennings sitting by the chest. Name of paper, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, dated Saturday Morning, October 2, 1965. The article is included in the sale. The chest has wear, but in good condition for it's age. The base of the chest is worn and some support underneath the chest has been added over time to protect breakage of the legs on the chest. Although the leg base shows wear the chest is sturdy. If you are wanting to see the chest let me know to made arrangements. If it sells before you get a chance to see it I will let you know ahead of time. Shipping, I will deliver within a 200 mile radius if purchase at asking price. If an offer is made and accepted it will be pickup only. Pickup address is in Valley, AL.
