Burmese Lacquer Offering Vessel No. 1

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 vintage Burmese lacquerware vessel is decorated in the za yun pattern, meaning netting. The almost geometric patten on this is said to have been derived from imported textiles, possibly Scottish. This vintage piece is from the Mid 20th Century.
