20th Century Korean Tansu Nong Bandaji tallboy wedding chests or cabinet made of elmwood featuring a two tone wood grain with ornate brass accents.

Korean Bandaji chest or trunk featuring elm frame with brass accents. The Korean name bandaji (literally meaning ""half closing"") derives from the hinged door in the front of this chest. This type of chest was one of the most essential, and most commonly found, pieces of furniture in a Korean household.

This chest, with its richly decorated fittings and extensive metalwork, was produced in the northern provinces of the Korean peninsula,
