Footed Tray

지승사각반 (紙繩四角盤)

1900s

Lacquer over twisted and coiled paper

Overall: 34.2 x 9 x 9 cm (13 7/16 x 3 9/16 x 3 9/16 in.)

Gift of Bernice Sapirstein Davis in memory of Jennie Sapirstein 1988.248

Description

In Korea, paper has been widely used since the 19th century for constructing stationery and storage boxes, as well as for paraphernalia for the scholar's studio. This tray's modest appearance belies both the laborious process involved in its construction and its status in Korea as an object for the scholar's desk.
