Silver Betel Nut container Intricate Antique
Antique silver hand fabricated Betel Nut box-container. One of the most intricate and beautiful I have seen. Aged, but not damaged. It has somewhere along its life lost the small lime box that was attached to it. It has an intricate latch and amazing craftsmanship. It is in the Central Sumatra style of Indonesia, Minangkabau workmanship. Outstanding piece is 3" wide, 2 1/2" tall. I have more pictures to share if interested.
