Korean Hanbok Plate (Small) - Saekdong Girl
This handmade Korean banchan dish (Jeopsi 접시) is more than just a dish, it's actually an art piece that you can use every day or display in your home. In my search for Korean-themed dishes, this one just popped out at me.. and no wonder, this dish has actually won awards in Korea!!
As these are all handmade, made to order, I placed a custom order months ago and therefore I have limited stock. These plates come in small, large and medium sizes. But currently, only small and medium are available. The large is around 8"x 9" size. Let me know if you are interested - I can consider ordering them also.
What does Saekdong 색동 mean? It means multi-colored or rainbow colored. And it was typically a design that was in children's or wedding hanbok. And it's the sleeve design that you often see in Korean traditional children hanbok. I love the interpretation of the hanbok onto the plate in the most beautiful blue hue.
Both have similar sizes.
- Small Saekdong plate is L 4.25" x W 4"
Hand wash is recommended.
SHIPPING - Flat $7 for 49 contiguous United States, Flat $10 for non-contiguous US includes states such as Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, US Virgin Islands.
USE - these small size plates is best for small banchans like pickles, myeolchi bokkeum, jeotgal, ssamjang. Medium size will be great for any banchan like namul, fish etc. Or of course, it could just totally be a display. Some pictures show both small and medium size for comparison.
