LotNo. Symbol Lot Description
1444 cover image1895 (10th month, 17th day; Dec. 3) Korean government official envelope (142 x 268mm.) from the Temporary Consular Chargé d'Affaires of Corea to Yokohama (Dec. 4), showing "Gaeguk" era in Chinese characters and three strikes of the official seal with "Gaeguk" era reading the "504th year of the founding of the Empire" in red, and bearing Japan Koban 2s vertical pair, cancelled by Japanese c.d.s. in brown, with matching "Yokohama" c.d.s. adjacent, central horizontal filing fold, nevertheless a Fine to Very Fine and exceptionally rare surviving cover from the short-lived "Gaeguk" era,

The significance of this important Official envelope lies in the fact that, though the First Sino-Japanese War resulted in Japan's assumption of administrative control over Korea, under King Gojong of Joseon, Korea briefly switched from the Chinese sexagency cycle calendar to the "Gaeguk" era calendar, which lasted for less than two years between 1894-95. Not only was the "Gaeguk" ("Founding of the Republic") era depicted in Chinese characters, but also the format and writing of this official envelope was very much in the style of an official Chinese government envelope, which was a testament to Chinese influence in Korea, despite the Chinese loss of control over Korea.

The first Sino-Japanese War resulted in Japan's assumption of administrative control over Korea. Tension between China and Japan had been building up since 1882 because of Japanese intervention in a restive Korea, which manifested itself in an attack on the Japanese Legation in Seoul. The signing of the Convention of Tientsin in 1885 averted war with China, and China's suzerainty over Korea was maintained. In 1894, Korea requested that Chinese troops be dispatched to Korea to suppress the Tong-kak Uprising. For Japan, the presence of Chinese troops in Korea represented a clear violation of the Tientsin Treaty, and Japan, therefore, sent its own troops to Seoul. Although the Korean government suppressed the ensuing rioting, both China and Japan refused to withdraw their troops from Korea, unless this was reciprocal. Following the outbreak of hostilities on July 25, 1894, war was declared between China and Japan on August 1, 1894. The war ended in April 1895 with the Japanese victory resulting in an end of China's suzerainty over Korea and China's cession of various territories to Japan including Taiwan and the Liaoding Territory.
