Tribal Medicine Container
Our vintage carved wood and bone Tribal Medicine Containers originate from Indonesia and traditionally contained a mixture of lime paste, piper betel pepper leaf and thin slices of acacia-nat. This mixture was called betel quid and chewing the mixture was a tradition, custom or ritual which dates back thousands of years from South Asia to the Pacific... More importantly though, these tribal decor piece show magnificent craftsmanship and are sure to bring oodles of character to your home.
Please note: each individual piece is hand carved so no two pieces are the same. Slight variations in shape, size and patterns of each item should be expected.
