Almost identical betelnut cutter from my own collection. Notice the head is different, this head is the head of Ganesh. Indonesian betelnut cutters are made from iron, those from India mostly from brass.

Bottom of this antique Javanese Sirihbowl, is the best place to look for its age. When deerbrown, irragular, and deposits in the rim (remaining clay from the castingproces), you know you have an old piece. In the centre there should always be a geometrical figure, normally a small square, but in this case a double star. It is believed to be a maker's mark.
