    bamboo lime container

    Early-Mid 20th century
    4cm high

    This small betelnut lime container comes from Burma. Such containers are common among the Burmese who are enthusiastic practitioners of the betelnut ceremony, both formally and informally. The bamboo container displays the shewezawa technique of gold decoration. The top features the image of a sacred animal (possibly a makara). Residual lime powder still exists within the container.
    If there is interest, I will provide other details/information available prior to purchase. Ref: 7MC952NM

    Hi I am Willian Mitchell Antiques.

    I have a variety of items from different corners of the globe. My work
    as an English teacher has taken me to Asia, Africa and the Middle
    East. It is this travel that set me on the road to antiques and
    collecting. Shops, outdoor markets, private homes, and individuals
    have been the source of my collection. I am especially attracted to
    illustrated textiles and manuscripts and have several on offer. I have
    even more of these from my recent travel to India. I continue to love
    the hunt and the interesting people I meet along the way.
