This exceptional antique Burmese thabeik* silver bowl has a circular rounded form.

The surface of the bowl is embellished with fine panels of embossed and chased repoussé (repousse) decoration depicting a series of iconic Burmese figures in high relief, wearing courtly and traditional dress.

As with the vast majority of these bowls, the continuous frieze of figures relates to Burmese folklore.

The lower portion of the body is encircled with chased stylised leaf motifs.

The upper portion the body is ornamented with a broad band of chased scrolling undulating leaf decoration.
