Many of the silversmiths of Burma are proficient in this art, though few are fond of it, because it entails working over a hot furnace and in sulphurous fumes. The design appears as if drawn in silver outline on a black ground. The articles made are cups, lime boxes, plates and knife handles, and are all quite smooth with a good polish.
