Ornate Vintage Turkoman Tribal Tobacco-Snuff Box 

This unusual Afghan Turkmen Tribal Tobacco-Snuff Box is also known as a Nas Kedi (Naskady). It was handcrafted during the late to mid-1900's of a hollowed gourd finished with ornate mountings, medallion amulets, and a removable top.

Gourd boxes like these have been used for generations by the tribal people of Central Asia.  A Nas Kedi was used to hold both tobacco and snuff.  They are frequently depicted in historical artwork from the region.
