A very old set of bronze BETEL NUT cutters from the INDONESIAN ARCHIPELAGO. We have dated these as early 1800's but they could well earlier.This is one of several sets from a collection that we are listing....this one is really very old and has remnants of a gilt coating ....has decoration of a Lion at top and a further Lion Head on the bottom arm. The Cutters are 5 3/4" in length with the width varying from around 2 - 2 1/2".
