large black lacquered woven basket from burma 19th c

A very unusually large round woven basket from Burma that has been lacquered black and appears to be ceramic from the many layers of lacquer. Truly a unique basket that feels very contemporary although 19th century.    Very subtle x markings on the rim and the impressions of the artisan working on the basket. 

19” diameter x 8”h
