Pair of betel cutters; the larger (200 g) comes from India (with customs label) and the smaller probably from Burma (or Thailand) - 8.5 x 1 x 18, 100 g).

Both have the image of a peacock, this is unique to Skanda, son of Shiva, and to his counterpart tamil Murugan.

The betel nut, when chewed, gives off a slight poisoning.

This was a common habit in most of south-east Asia and it still is today in many places.

It is commonly chewed after having been ground or sliced, then wrapped in betel piper grapevine leaves and covered in lime; known as Quid Betel.

Tobacco or flavoursome spices can also be added.

The book is not included in the lot.

Two very fine items for expert collectors.

Well packaged and sent via express shipment.
