This early 20th century four-piece Buddhist offering bowl is a lacquer ware design unique to Burma. It is from a classification of vessels called “hsun ok,” containers that were used to present offerings of food at Buddhist monasteries and incorporates four bowls into a pleasingly rounded shape crowned with a stepped lid.The large bottom bowl rests on six low feet and was used for rice. It is topped with fitted trays for serving curries and condiments. The inverted cup at the top of the stack was used as a ladle, condiment bowl or as a drinking cup.
