Burmese lacquerware - Traditional Black Elephant Lidded Bowl
Burmese lacquerware - Traditional Black Elephant Lidded Bowl.
This beautiful lacquerware lidded bowl made in bamboo and lacquer is constructed in 2 main parts, opening to reveal a cinnabar coloured compartment. The lid is capped with a carved elephant handle. Although a modern piece, it is deliberately made with a little wear and tear to provide more character.
This is a beautiful and very unusual piece to find on sale in the West.
