Description

This beautiful piece of beadwork is actually a panel from the top of a beaded box. It was made in Lampung, South Sumatra, Indonesia somewhere in the first half of the 20th century. The original box was likely used for the storage of betel nut paraphernalia. The rattan box was probably damaged beyond repair, leaving the ornate top. It is fascinating to see the underside where the beads were attached to the woven base. The box tops are definitely old, but they are in good, study condition for use as decorative objects and or objects of study.

There are three listings for such items on this site, the last two photos show them all together.

Panels are 5" X 5"
