 Description This semi-formal jacket or dangui has the pattern of Chinese letters “longevity (壽)” and “happiness (福)” and the pattern of seven treasures, pomegranates, and flowers on light brown background.

Made during the mid-Joseon Dynasty, dangui is a ceremonial robe worn by women of the royal court or the noble family over the jeogori (jacket).

It looks like jeogori, but its front and back sides are longer -- reaching the knees -- and its sides are opened.

This particular dangui consists of two pieces.

The outer side and lining are both light brown.

The pattern of Chinese letters meaning “longevity” and “happiness” and the pattern of seven treasures, pomegranates, and Buddhist Cross are embroidered on the outside, with the pattern of clouds embroidered on the lining.

The collar is sharp, and the sleeves become narrower from the jindong (armhole) to the end.

The inner chest ties are dark purple, but the outer chest tie is gone.

The pattern of the Chinese letters “longevity” and “happiness” on the sleeves is the same as that on the body but looks more brilliant because it is embroidered with gold threads.

The pattern of Buddhist Cross shows that Buddhism still influenced the upper class of the Joseon, which worshipped Confucius.
