A musical instrument(?), probably a patala (xylophone) now missing its keys. Comprising a thin, bow-shaped container on a rectangular foot, lacquered black and gold with three flame-like motifs carved at either end. Bamboo keys would originally have been suspended on cords between the frame and struck by beaters (now missing).
