Clockwise from left to right:

Vintage Northern Thai offering box, black lacquer, probably used by a monk to hold a ration of cooked rice; its pumpkin or gourd shape symbolizes prosperity, abundance and good health.

Vintage rustic tribal box, incised red and black lacquer, likely used by a family to hold money, jewelry, rice or other foodstuffs; possibly from the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.

Pair of contemporary Burmese boxes, red-orange and ivory colored lacquer; may be used for spices, for storing collections of small objects, or as gift boxes, perhaps for a special piece of jewelry. Affordable!
