Description

This lovely geometrically decorated rectangular beaded storage box was created in Lampung, Sumatra Indonesia to hold betel nuts or leaves.

The pattern is made from old glass trade beads in reds, yellow, orange (the orange beads are mutirajah, a fascinating heirloom type of tiny wound bead from China). The beads are attached to a waxed basket.

Length 112mm, 68mm width, 34mm height

From Lumpung South Sumatra, old, but date unknown

Wonderful patina and good condition - some deterioration at one corner of the basket base - please have a good look at the photos.
