Antique Mandalay Vanity Box in teak wood with copper inlay. Used by the Burmese woman to store her make up (Thanaka, a paste from the bark of a tree that acts as sun block, and skin conditioner), clothes and jewelry.

Sometimes the larger chests were used to carry the necessities for a wedding as the woman left her village for the village of her future husband.
