This is a black and red lacquered chest with three drawers and a mirror. Upon opening the chest, the mirror folds out at the top. Three drawers below are made to keep makeup accessories. Lidded bowls for hair oil and face powder are kept in the drawers. This type of chest first appeared in the late Joseon period when glass mirrors were imported from abroad.
