A very difficult to acquire lacquered Stupa from Thailand; traditionally these would be placed at the end of the altar, one at each end, and were primarily used for receiving gifts of food for the temple monks. Our example is well over 100 years old and in original condition as found; there is a repair to the stem or finial and was re-attached many years before (please examine photos carefully). The lacquer is in excellent condition. This antique piece measures 24 inches high x 12 inches in diameter.
