Antique Chinese Bamboo Opium Pipe

Note Purchased from a reputable antique auction

This early Chinese opium pipe has a bamboo body and dragon decorated copper saddle with bone mouthpiece and cap. The bowl top is covered in Chinese symbols with the underside showing 4 back-stamps. The condition is dark-black mostly around the saddle area. This is a piece that would need professional cleaning not a job for a novice. I sold its opium box on Trade Me and lamp separately, now its pipe. Tentative date 1865-1900 South Island gold rush era.

Pipe Dimensions 50cm long
