Throughout Asia, it used to be customary for most homes to have special compartmentalized boxes or trays that were used to hold the various materials used to make fresh betel nut quids. When guests would visit, they would be presented with a fully stocked box with all the makings of a tasty betel chew. A typical box would have separate compartments for sliced betel nuts, fresh betel leaf and various spices such as cardamom, fennel, saffron and lime powder.

This small Betel Nut box was probably used for holding specific spices or for taking your personal betel nut chew with you on the go.
