Large Burmese Red and Black Lacquer Tiered Round Box, Early to Mid-20th Century

About

A striking and finely decorated Burmese red lacquer two-tiered round storage box and cover, called a bi-it, Bagan, Burma (Myanmar), early to mid-20th century. The round box comprised of three parts, two compartments and a lid - originally used to hold cosmetics and or clothing for an aristocratic woman. The decoration of the box is quite interesting, seemingly pixelated. The pattern created using a type of resist - in this case it looks like lace fabric was used to create the pattern. Looking closely, you can still see the weave of the fabric.
