View More Pictures

This exquisite jewelry box is elegantly decorated with a mother of pearl design of phoenixes and flying horses. The harmony between the natural wooden surface, which is lacquered repeatedly by traditional technique inherited from Goryeo dynasty (918-1392), and the iridescence of the mother of pearl design makes it an impressive item for any collection.

This jewelry box features the unique structure of a drawer below and a lid above, as well as four slide boxes under the lid. It offers a pleasant way for storing valuable personal ornaments such as jewelry.

The houseware coated with natural lacquer has long been used in East Asia for its glossy beauty as well as its practicality for being strong, watertight, antibacterial and purifying air in the room.
