Description
The special stamp on traditional Korean culture is issued to demonstrate the wisdom and aesthetic sensitivity of our ancestors by showcasing utensils they used daily. Introduced in the third series are lighting facilities.

Wooden Deungjan (lamp-oil container).
Preserved in the National Folk Museum of Korea Wooden Deungjan, which is an oil cup for a lamp, is categorized into "Deung-gyeong", which is made to position the lamp-oil container at the suitable height, and "Deung-ga", which does not have a hanging rack and is made to place the cup on the upper section. The wooden Deungjan has an octagonal prop, on which a pole protrudes and the lamp oil container is hung on the rack, underneath which a saucer for lamp oil is placed. This wooden Deungjan was the most popular lighting apparatus used indoors regardless of social standing.
