This is an elegant burl flask probably made and used in the Mongolia-Tibetan frontier lands of China. It is made of burl. When found in Beijing, I had Master Cao make a stand for it -- and it sits on that stand. It probably was used to carry tobacco. The plastic cap does not move: we cannot separate it from the flask.The center "button" moves and can be lifted out to put tobacco inside. The flask has a diameter of 13 cm, and the wood is 5 cm at its thickest point Lovely patina and a few nicks accumulated over time.
