A 19th Century bronze betel nut box with native design copper inlay on lid. This is a small traveling box measuring 5" long x 2 3/8" high x 2 3/8" deep. There are two sets of compartment lids inside, and one compartment is still filled with caked lime. Condition: The condition is fair. The end handles have been added at a later date, and one set of compartment lids have been replaced. Also this very heavy box has a lot of small nicks, scratches, and dents from use.
