One of a kind oval shaped Vintage brass paan daan for storing beetle leaves and condiments, beautifully handcrafted with smooth lines in excellent quality brass by artisans from the South of India 

This  paan daan is crafted with a removable oval box having 2 semi circular compartments with sections for the condiments and one small one with a cap for the white 'chuna / katha' . The large oval compartment is reserved for the paan leaves and is accompanied by a tall flat spoon for spreading the katha and Chuna on the paan leaf.

The compartments inside are for storage of all condiments that go into making of the paan like cardomom, sukhi or sweet supari, kathaa and chuna and sometimes Tambaku along with the beetle nut leaves or paan leaves.

This traditional brass Paan Daan can be found in most Indian households since paan is eaten 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.

Truly a collectors item, often passed on from one generation to the next.
