Snuff-Tobacco Box Choice:

Ornate Afghan Gourd Tribal Tobacco-Snuff Box 

This unusual item is a souvenir Afghan snuff-tobacco container box (Nas Kedi, Naskady). It was handcrafted from a hollowed gourd finished with ornate mountings and a removable top.

Gourd boxes like these have been used for generations by the tribal people of Central Asia. for holding tobacco and snuff.  You will see them shown frequently in historical artworks from the region. 

Some of our contemporary items at Tribal Muse are identified as "souvenir" because they are similar to the ones found in the street bazaars along the Afghan border for purchase as souvenirs by travelers.

While the designs are true to old tribal ones, souvenir items are generally less meticulously made, sometimes with minor irregularities in design or finish

Please see the drop down menu to see our selection. Price is for one Nas Kedi container.
