Very rare Burmese/Shan small betel box, over 100 years old with “ku-nan kan byat” pattern and original inner tray. Genuine antique Burmese lacquer is almost impossible to find these days; I picked this up in a small shop Luang Prabang, Laos in 1998. H: 8.7cm/3.4in and W: 10.2cm/4in. There are old repairs on this as well as a pleasing cracalature typical of antique Burmese lacquer. A fine acquisition for the knowledgable collector.
