Very Large Indonesian Betel Nut Box - For Sale

Very Large Indonesian Betel Nut Box
Price: $725.00
This finely crafted Indonesian betel nut box is the finest I have ever come across. The strapwork decorated body is in clearest white paktong, an alloy of copper, nickel and zinc much favored as a tarnish-free silver substitute by British silversmiths in the Eighteenth Century. There are three compartments inside for the betelnuts and the lime and betel leaves necessary for chewing them. Indonesian, Nineteenth Century. Approximately 7-3/4 inches long by four inches wide by 2-3/4 inches high. Superb condition.
