This is a beautiful antique Korean coin storage chest, which dates to the late Joseon Dynasty. It was hand made from solid zelkova wood, and has hand wrought iron mounts. This chest measures about 42 1/4" long, by 17 1/2" deep, and 16.1/2 inches high, and sits on shoe feet. The hinged lid is a single board 11 inches deep. This chest is in very good original condition with a couple shrinkage cracks, and minor warping to the lid, which is typical of chest from this period. Original lock without key.
I got a chair from my grandmother with carved dragons on it. After searching everywhere, I found the same chair on your website. I thought it looked Asian, but had no idea how valuable it is! I almost sold it to a friend for a hundred bucks. I am so glad I used your site to learn how much it's worth! Your price guide is such a great tool! Thanks Again!!
