Vintage brass paan daan for storing beetle leaves and condiments, handcrafted by artisans from the South of India.
This paan daan has been crafted with exquisite floral embossing on the cover, a removable tray with a small round container for the "Chuna", compartments for the condiments and the large base of the box for the beetle leaves.
The compartments inside are meant for all condiments that go into making of the paan like cardomom, sukhi or meethi supari , kathaa, cloves and sometimes Tambaku and the beetle nut leaves or paan leaves are normally kept under this tray to keep them fresh.
One can find such traditional paan daans in most Indian households which is consumed through out the day mostly by the ladies / head of the family and not only offered to guests as a welcome gesture but also serves as a favourite past time while gossiping.
A collectors item indeed!
