Details: This lacquer ware jewelry storage box is marked by a luxurious design of fully bloomed arabesque blossoms, rhythmic lines and whorls of the vines, and a pair of phoenix wrought by the intricate mother of pearl inlaying technique. The use of yellowish mother of pearl pieces to decorate the entire surface of a handicraft has been established as a major feature of the Korean najeon chilgi, or lacquerware inlaid with mother of pearl designs, since the late Joseon (1392-1910) period when it prospered. The phoenix (bonghwang), along with the dragon, is the symbol of an emperor and is believed to herald a time of peace and prosperity.
