Cast Brass Antique Betel Nut Box


Travel back in time with this betel leaf shaped Paan Daan or betel nut box. Sourced from the eastern state of India, Orissa, the cast brass betel nut box has open-work panels on all sides. The pattern over the box has parallels with work often found in seventeenth-century marble jali screens of central and northern India, most popularly seen in the doors of the gate leading to the Jilaukhana (forecourt) of the Taj Mahal.
Inspired from Mughal designs, this Antique Betel Nut Box has the shape of a paan or like a heart when you see the top of the lid. Paan has always been a stimulant of great luxury for people till today. For such an ingredient, a box as suitable as this in terms of luxury is the best.

For those not familiar with Paan, it is a mild stimulant that is chewed. Popular throughout the Asian continent, these boxes were used to store and carry the various ingredients that go into the making of a paan. This simple yet clever Paan box is an excellent piece for anyone with a penchant for collecting objects of curiosity and historical charm.
