Vintage brass tiffin carrier

Dimensions (in inch): 8.5 x 4.5

Tiffin is an Indian-English word that means either a light snack between meals or a lunch. Alternatively the box that the meal or snack is carried is also called a tiffin. A school-going child or an office worker would carry a tiffin from home.

Brass utensils were extensively used in Indian kitchens until the advent of stainless steel and aluminium. While steel was much easier to wash, it didn’t retain heat the way brass did. In fact, in recent times, science has proven what ancient wisdom already knew, brass utensils promote good health due to inherent medicinal value of the metal. Brass utensils were also a status symbol. A brass tiffin carrier like the one featured here would retain the heat of the food well.

The tiffin carrier is more than 50 years old.
