A Fine Rare 18th C Brass Betel Nut Lime Paste Container with incorporated Mortar.
The exterior ornamentation beautifully done with floral motifs and punch work. The lid attached with a hinge and catch. A suspension loop for attachment to a chain.
This duel purposed tapered cylindrical container was used not only to store the lime paste but also as a mortar. The bulbous end of the piece shows good signs of use.
These mortars were used by people who had difficulty chewing the hard areca nut of the betel palm. The mortar was used to crush the nut into a paste and mix it with the lime and pepper leaf.
Lime paste is one of the three ingredients for making betel quid, the other two being a leaf from the vine of the piper betel pepper plant, and thin slices of the areca-nut. Chewing the mixture of areca nut and betel leaf is a tradition, custom or ritual which dates back thousands of years from South Asia to the Pacific. 
It measures approximately 12.5cm in length.
Please view the photos as they are a vital part of the description.
