Early 20th Century Burmese Lacquered Tray, “Pagan Bya”

$1,000

About

Burmese (Myanmar) Lacquerware 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. The art of achieving certain tonal qualities of color is a closely guarded secret and it has been said that a master will not impart this secret even to his wife and only to the most trusted of his sons. This large shallow round tray is made of bamboo basketry with good quality multi layers of cinnabar lacquer and has a fine silky gloss. The black lacquer undercoat is visible in some worn away areas of the top cinnabar lacquer, creating a “negoro” effect. This 6 footed tray has 6 reinforced ribs which also enhance its decorative effect. These trays were used in past for serving food. Measurements 18-3/4” diameter 3-3/4” high.
