             Hsun-Ok is Burmese Lacqerware

16" High x 7" Diameter.                              Please refer to the Burmese Lacquerware description on the last page. This piece is a lidded storage jar with a spire. Hsun-ok is a coiled bamboo vessel used in Burma to present offerings to Buddhist temples & decorate shrines. Working from bottom to top, the structure is composed of a pedestal base, occasionally a removable tray inside the base, and a multi-tiered finial. The foot of the base sometimes includes a tier composed of small, hand-carved reed-like pieces of wood (like the red one, above). The finial is in the shape of stupa, which is the top of a Buddhist temple.    There are worn spots from use over time. Probably 19th century.
