Silver Opium Chatelaine
Truly an unusual and fascinating piece of silver jewelry from
the Far East. We were told that the opium user hooked the chatelaine
to his sash. Three tools are suspended from the Chinese Foo Dog,
the center of interest of this piece. Click for detail.
One tool was used to break the opium pellet into small pieces,
the small spoon was used to place the opium in the pipe and the
third was used to scrape the residue from the side of the pipe.
Tested 900 silver. 8" long. (Stock number 002ch1207) $125.00
