A lovely antique Tibetan cup or bowl case with a traditional meander motif on the top and sides. It is made of woven fibres around a layered wicker style frame. It is uncommon to find old cases from these materials that are complete and hence there is a small amount of damage to the base, sides and lid. Inside the case is included a more recent Chinese porcelain bowl.
