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 particularly interesting in that it depicts a Lion chasing a Pig and there is a further Lion Head depicted on the bottom arm also. The Cutters are 6" in length with the width varying from around 2 - 2 1/2".
