Flower vase, pan-o, made of lacquered, split bamboo, woven and coiled, and decorated in shwe-zawa (gold leaf on black lacquer). On the belly of the vessel are Burmese mythical lions, chinthe, while elsewhere the decoration is in the form of scrollwork. It has a round belly and a tall stem which is slightly everted at the rim; this shape is presumably based on a metal prototype. The base is cinnabar red. Such vases are often used to hold flowers on altars.
