Burmese Lacquer Offering Vessel No. 2

Yun-de is what the Burmese refer to as lacquerware. It is inherently beautiful, but ultimately very utilitarian. It'’s light, flexible, waterproof, and hard. The many layers of lacquer resist mildew and polish to a smooth luster. This elegantly shaped container was made in Bagan, the centre of lacquerware production. This piece has been decorated with star motifs using diamond shaped shell pieces. The base was made using jackfruit wood and bamboo. The vessel has seen use but is in very good condition. This vintage piece is from the Mid 20th Century.
