Why this is a
Masterpiece

It is a commonly used household implement, which is representative of the daily life of the Korean people.

History of the Object
Normally, the bandaji was located in the anbang or housewives’ room, and housewives placed blankets and other household goods in it. Such cabinets were practical pieces of furniture, meant to be solid and strong rather than things of beautiful design. For that reason, they were used for many purposes in an ordinary household. This piece is of rectangular parallel‐piped design, and the hinged door is in front, with patterns on the lower part and bow‐shaped iron handles on both sides, making it easy to transport.
