Description

Kum-boo (also spelled keum-boo or kum-bu) is a korean decorative appliqué technique in which pure gold foil is fused onto the surface of finished silver objects.

The origins and historical development of the kum-boo technique are little known, but it is clear that koreans have been using brass, silver, and gold ware and utensils for their daily eating and ceremonial purposes for thousands of years.

Koreans and other east asian people traditionally believed that the ingestion of pure gold would improve health and well-being. For this reason, many korean silver utensils are decorated with 24-karat gold overlays in the form of letters and patterns that convey wishes for good health, wealth and longevity.
