  tea leaf salad bowl

 

Myanmar

A lacquerware tea leaf salad bowl typically consists of a footed platter, which is divided in compartments, similar to a Japanese bento yet typically with a rounded section in the centre, which is surrounded by fan-shaped segments.

 

Typically, the tea leaf salad (fig.) is placed in the centre, while the fan-shaped segments are used to fill with other snacks, such as fried garlic, shredded ginger, peanuts, sesame seeds, and broad beans.
