$275.00
( 0 Reviews )

Antique

Very thin lightweight cylindrical box lacquered inside and out; the interior plain, the exterior with delicate designs in gold and red on a black ground.  The top portion lifts off to expose a shallow lift-out dish/tray. These boxes are used to store the ingredients for betel-nut chewing, a common practice in south and southeast Asia and the tropical Pacific islands; it is a breath freshener and mild stimulant.  The detail on this one is magnificent as can be seen in the close-up photograph.  Wonderful accent piece of small storage piece for your home or office.

8.5" wide x 9" tall x 8.5" deep
