This elegantly decorated with cloisonne serkyem offering set is used for ritual offerings to Dharma-protectors and guardians. Literally this Tibetan word - serkyem - means “golden drink”. You can it with black-tea, or different kinds of alcohol.
This serkyem is made from copper and decorated with cloisonne. So it is well-protected against oxidation, and will serve for the years agains cheap copper items.

Very well made beautiful serkyem
Not only is the serkyem beautiful but it is very well made - when I am taking the serkyems out (I need 2 for my practice), the other cheaper from copper and brass that I already have for some time, has a tendency to spill out, have to be very careful and hold it with both hands. This one is small but has some weight and good proportions. It is standing upright also when filled and I manage to take it out holding in just one hand, even going down a steep staircase.
