Description

KOREA. Openwork Double Happiness Chatelaine with Attached Ribbons & Charms, ca. 19th Century.
174.4 x 140.65 mm. Mandel-108.7; KCBC-Y-39; KCY-1-42-2. Openwork design with large compound character within dual frame and surmounted by charms and rope motif. At top is a metal hanger and attached to the motif is a luxurious embroidered red ribbon which appears to have been used as a hanger as well. Also attached to the front of the piece are two embroidered bats, which are attached to the piece with red cord, which is tied in an infinity knot. The detail of the embroidery on the bat pieces is exquisite, and despite the age of the piece, they remain original and well preserved. A total of nine exquisitely embroidered ribbons are attached to the bottom of the frame, in a veritable rainbow of colors. Each of the nine ribbons splits into at least three different colored ribbons, so when they are fully spread out, the color and detail is truly wonderful to behold. The ribbon colors include teal, yellow, red, purple with red embroidery, white, pink and navy blue. All of the ribbons have an embroidered pattern as well. Attached to these ribbons are (68) charms, (12) seed coins and (34) coins. Nearly all of the coins and charms have pigmentation, which if present is entirely original. Some of the coins have two, three, even four colors present, including blue, red, green and yellow. This example was very carefully preserved and deservedly so, it is a true testament to the craftsmanship of these pieces. An intricate, beautiful and exceptional piece deserving of a treasured place in its future collection.
Estimate: $20,000.00 - $30,000.00
EXTREMELY FINE.
Pedigree: From the Craig Collection.
