It is a so-called temple dha from Burma.
Most of them are souvenir dha sold to tourists. Sorry for the bad news! And again sorry that I can't help with the translation.:shrug:

Indeed. I have one of these in what another forum member referred to as my "oops box". }|:oP Luckily it did not leave me poverty stricken.
Balanced way too far from the hand and feels like it could fly apart if I shake it hard. Shall be a placeholder together with one of those more common touristy things until I can replace it by something antique.
It has a certain charm though, mainly due to the Burmese inscriptions and the decorations.
