Magnificent Brass Nut-cutter reminiscent of mid century India and the Mughal era in the shape of a galloping horse with a rider on its back.
The front portion show the horse with the rider while back of the cutter is the handle with a cutting blade in between, beautifully crafted and handengraved.
Such nut cutters were widely used in the mid century to cut or crack Nuts and Beetle nut in particular into small pieces for chewing which was a day long activity and eaten by itself or with beetle leaves, stored in a brass box called a "Paan Daan".
Handcrafted by artisans from the South of India, this majestic nut cutter is a collectors item and a "conversation starter".
