DESCRIPTION: A Qing dynasty bamboo pipe, perhaps used for either opium or tobacco, with a bulbous body crafted from a large segment of giant bamboo. Mounted onto this segment are heavy brass fittings, one for the tubular “tobacco bowl” with its long brass shaft descending into the body. The other brass tube holds the long, bent bamboo stem that is used to draw the smoke out. Very good condition with a nice patina. DIMENSIONS: 16” high assembled (40.5 cm). The bamboo body is 3 ¾” wide (9.5 cm) x 3” deep (7.5 cm).
