Antique ca 1900 Burmese Lacquerware Food Box 19 cm tall Exquisite RARE
This is a 1400 gram ( 35 oz) 19 cm ( 7.5 in ) tall, 20 x 30 cm ( 8 x 12 in ) at the rectangular base, ca 1900 Classic lacquer ware foodbox with tray on the inside. It has beautiful detail that is artistically done, hand-painted, hand etched and perfect in detail. It is in perfect condition and rare to find. I got it in Burma in 1980 during my first work tour there. The animal motif ( 8 kinds on box top) is the special Burmese weekly animal representation, with Wednesday being represented by 2 animals, the lion and the elephant.
My work is in Thailand now so my items will be shipped from my work city, Bangkok.
