This traditional toiletry case called bitjeop (comb box) was used to store articles for hair grooming such as a comb, a comb cleaner, a hair parter, and a hairpin. It only consists of drawers, distinguishing it from a gyeongdae (mirror stand) and other boxes which contain more cosmetic items such as a hand mirror, oil, and powder. Traditionally regarded as an essential wedding gift for brides, this particular item contains three tiers of drawers complete with handles and a lacquered surface.
