This attractive lacquer dish is from the city of Pagan, in the former Burma (now Myanmar). It's slightly under 6" in diameter. It was made on a base of bamboo basketry.The Burmese word "yun" means both "lacquer", and the decorative engraving technique used there.

Yun decoration is made up of a series of tiny lines engraved on the surface of the lacquer object, which are then filled with colored lacquer. The decoration of a single object requires thousands of engraved lines with the design for the red, yellow, black or green engraved, colored and then dried separately. Each color used requires additional drying time.

The plate is excellent condition. We have left the old antiques shop price tag on the back.
