Antique Lacquer Offering Elm Bowl Southeast Asia

About

A Southeast Asian lacquer vessel of iconic form from Burma or Northern Thailand, circa turn of the 20th century. This covered vessel is called a “Hsun Ok” and was made in the form of the large stupa of the Buddhist temple. They are owned used for offerings to the monasteries. Some monks also used the simpler form to collect elm offering. This vessel is made with layers of lacquer over wood. Black lacquer is first applied, with several further layers of lacquer colored in vermilion. Where this has been worn away a “negoro” effect has been produced. As a more luxury item, on the shoulder of the lid, an elaborate design of scrolling vines in relief was created. This type of vessel form a very striking architectural silhouette even in the modernistic interior.
