Offering Vessel

While flipping through April's Elle Decor Mag, I came across Cathy Vandewalle's Penthouse in Bangkok. The space was photographed by highly regarded Interior Designer Vicente Wolf (whose blog I happen to follow.)
I've seen offering vessels used many times by designers, but the display of her collection in the guest room just look so cool. They really are stunning in quantity!
"In Burma (now called Myanmar), the most graceful of lacquer ceremonial vessels is the Hsun-ok, used for centuries to carry gifts of food as offerings to the Buddhist monasteries."
