From time to time we find these beautiful hand-hewn betel-nut boxes. They date to the early 20th century, and are from Indonesia or Nepal or northern India.

Originally used to store and serve betel-nuts, tobacco, spices and leaves. In contemporary use, the compartments and divisions make for handy keepers of keys and keepsakes.

This one here is from Java, Indonesia. Approx. 11" x 8" x 4".
