South Korea Doll Peony Court Dance

Large Korean doll wearing Hanbok, the traditional Korean dress, consisting of a short jacket with long sleeves (Jeogori) and a skirt (Chima). Judging by her elegant pose and the fact that she is holding flowers this doll could be depicting the Gainjeonmokdan dance, a court dance with peonies. Marked ‘Korea’ under it’s stand by a former owner.

Folklore is in the air… uhm… ear!

No postcard available. There should be a nice postcard here that matches this doll, to show you how the people living in South Korea are dressed in their traditional costume.

There is nothing suitable in our postcard books at the moment, too bad!

Happy collecting,
