An Opium Pipe with a Jade Damper, 19thC.
A CHINESE BAMBOO OPIUM PIPE WITH JADE DAMPER, 19TH CENTURY.

A bamboo opium pipe with a jade damper. The jade makes it quite an unusual opium pipe, mostly the dampers are Yixing stoneware. The white metal fitting looks complete but must have been loose and a former owner has bound it with twine. This could be removed and a modern adhesive used to make a better fixing. The ends are ivory.

Approximately 56 cm long. Fine condition.

Please study the photographs.
