Early 20th Century Burmese Lacquer Offering Vessel, Hsun Ok

$2,100

About

Burmese (Myanmar) lacquer ware has a long tradition dating back to the 13th century. Lacquer in Burma is called “Thitsi” meaning the sap of a Thitsi Tree (Melanhorrea Usitata). Typically, bamboo and wood are used as a frame or base in making lacquer work. This covered vessel is called a “Hsun Ok”. The Hsun Ok is a large stupa shaped vessel (top of a Buddhist temple), owned by well to do families and used for taking cooked food offerings to the monasteries. This Hun Ok is 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. Dimensions: 13-3/4" diameter, 27" high.
