this small box is great to store earrings, bobs and other trinkets.
this lacquerware design is made with tiny incisions using a sharp needle point pen-like tool to carve the design on the surface of the lacquerware. This free-form art design technique is unique to Myanmar. Each piece therefore is an original. You can see this artistic carving and feel these tiny incisions on the surface of a lacquerware. It is simply amazing!
Lacquerware like any handmade item has imperfections, which makes it even more special. It is also light, waterproof, usable, and amazingly beautiful.
A lacquerware is made from 100% natural material. While lacquer is simply a zap from a tree, applying lacquer on an object made from bamboo or wood will significantly change its appearance. The process to create one lacquerware may take from 4 to 8 months and understanding how labor intensive to make one lacquerware makes it even more precious.
Size of box is 15 cm x 12 cm x 5 cm.
