    Ca. 19th century lacquer manuscript box. Sadaik (large, rectangular wooden and gold gilt manuscript boxes) were used at monasteries and the homes of government officials and wealthy individuals. The box depicts a motif of mythical beasts and traditional Burmese scenes . The rectangular box houses a small shelf inside. The exterior surfaces, lid and four sides are all decorated in the shwe zawa gold leaf technique. The draughtsmanship is both assured, delicate and of excellent quality. Given the nature of the Shwe Zawa style it is unusual for a box, such as this, to be found in such good condition.
