    Hi dear all!

    I got this in Israel in a flea market and I was told it was some kind of Berber container for make up, lipstick and so on. I got another thing from the same guy and I found out finally that was a fake, so I got a lot of doubts with this one. Do you think is real and if it is so, any idea of what it is for real or where can it be from?

    Any support as always deeply welcome :)

      Nothing to do with Berber lipstick.

      Here is says it is for spices, not make up.

      Oh thank you guys! I never would have find it without you (I didn't even know it was a peacock) I was trying to search by image but nothing. Bummer but at least not gonna scam anyone. Thank you!!

      Apparently is called Pandan Box. It carries spices which the married women die their hair root with. About the peacock:

      Peacock (Pavo cristatus), which is a symbol of grace, joy, beauty and love is the national bird of India. Peacock occupies a respectable position in Indian culture .About Peacocks - Morachi ChincholiPeacock occupies a respectable position in Indian culture and is protected not only by religious sentiments but also by parliamentary statute. It is fully protected . Inajar National Bird Of India - Cultural India

      Not that clear that it is not an antique but the value is very low. All this info just in case anybody has the same doubts in CW. :)
