Lac burgaute is an Asian technique of decorating lacquer ware with inlaid designs. It dates back to the Ming dynasty (1368 - 1644), when it was known as lo tien.

It was also popular in Japan, where it is referred to as aogai. The French name commonly used today derives from burgau (sea-ear, referring to the iridescent shell nacre of the abalone traditionally used) and laque (lacquer).
