- Bangjja (also called Yugi) is a type of hand-forged bronzeware originating from the Korean peninsula.  The main quality that differentiates bangjja from other bronzewares is the alloy ratio between copper and tin. Bangjja contains a greater amount of tin than other bronzewares (Copper 78%, Tin 22%). Due to this compositional difference, bangjja can be sterilized. For this reason, it has historically been used as tableware for the royal families of Korea, and the presentation of Korean royal court cuisine.

- Candle holders are in good condition considering its age, but does have a few dents and tarnished areas. Enjoy the beautiful patina as is, or polish it up if you prefer a bright and shiny look.
