Circa 1900, Philippine bronze betel nut box with silver inlay. This is a traveling size box with 3 compartments for nuts and lime. One compartment still has lime reside from having been used. This box is heavily cast weighing over 3lbs. The condition is good with no repairs, dents, or cracks except for normal surface wear and some loss of silver inlay. It measures 5.5 inches long by 2.5" deep and 2.5" high. A wonderful addition to any collection and makes for an interesting conversation piece.
