Burmese silver is, as well as most of Indian silver, profusely and finely repoussé decorated in high relief but in this case the favourite subjects are Buddhist symbols, animals and figures, with mythological scenes surrounded by a fine and tight foliage. The most common items produced during the Raj period are betel or lime boxes, cups and bowls (thabeik bowls).
