Jojokdeung (a lantern used to light as one walked).
Preserved in the National Folk Museum of Korea Jojokdeung, a type of lantern, was used to light the mortuary in the royal court, and by the patrol guards during the Chosan Period while they were making the rounds at night. The upper part of the lantern has a handle and inside the lantern was a revolving iron hinge for holding the candle, which enabled the candle to burn even when the lantern was shaken. The frame is made of bamboo or iron, the surface of which was thickly coated with oiled paper in the pattern of quilt plaits. The lower section of the lantern is cut and spread out to emit light in the forward direction.
