Bring home a piece of Indian Heritage and tradition with this vintage brass paan daan used for centuries for storing beetle leaves and condiments, handcrafted by artisans from the South of India and etched with floral motifs.
The paan daan has a removable tray with 4 round and one rectangular bowls for the traditional 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.
Such Paan Daans can be found in most Indian households as 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 while gossiping.
A collectors item, indeed!
