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.

Brass Candle Stick.
Preserved in the National Folk Museum of Korea, candle stands, called "Chot-dae" in Korean, include those for daily use, for ceremonies and for portable use, which were called "Sucho". The basic form of this brass candle stick comes in the shape of a wooden rice bowl placed upside down, on which stands a prop. Placed on the prop is a saucer plate with a short socket for inserting the candle. At the rear of this brass candle stick are several shapes of reflecting plates hanging like the halo of Buddha. This candle stick is made of brass with butterfly-shaped hanging reflecting plates.
