This table is called a gaedari soban or gujokban, literally meaning ‘a dog-legged dining table’ in Korean, as its legs resemble those of a dog. The center of the top is decorated with the Chinese character “bok” (福, good fortune) inlaid with mother-of-pearl. The character is surrounded by auspicious designs, such as cranes and peaches, encircled with a stripe of a saw tooth design.
