This nickel plated brass paan box is in the shape of a 1954 Chevrolet and was most likely a wedding favor.

The car was originally intended to hold the various ingredients used in a betel nut mixture. The lid lifts to reveal a compartment, where the ingredients would have been stored.

The rear of the car is engraved: Betel Motor Car, Open & Close Type, Patent No. 75086. Dated 18/8/54.


26 cm (L) x 11.5 cm (W) x 10 cm (D)
