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!
