Truly beautiful, antique, Cambodian Silver elephant betel nut box. Made in the traditional Khmer silver work. Made around the turn of the century. Each box is hand-formed of sheet silver and then hand chased and repousse added. This betel box has a lot of detail, right down to the tusks. Use the zoom feature to see.

These boxes traditionally held betel leaves, nuts, leaves, tobacco and/ or ointments. Original condition. I made no attempt to clean the inside as can be seen in the pictures of some residue at the bottom inside. Your chance to own a piece of history and beauty.
