Vintage Brass Opium Pipe of Creepy Head with Bone Trinkets?
Here we have a remnant of the seedy underground culture of old time Chicago. It's a vintage figural brass opium pipe with a chain a possible bone trinkets. You read it right folks, so take a look at those pictures. He's a creepy vision and a sparkling jewel. Check out the wicked ring!
I believe the pipe is made of brass. The artifact came out of a very strange estate containing many methods for changing your brain chemistry. I question if they're still walking upright. Crazy stuff.
I'm not sure where they picked up the piece. Maybe handmade, maybe picked up on their funky travels. I'm not sure if the trinkets are real bone.
The vintage pipe measures about 7" long, the head is 1 1/4" tall, and 1" wide. The long bone trinket measures 2 1/2", and the small one is about 1". The chain measures about 11". I think one earring is missing. There is great patina everywhere, including the streaks of green corrosion, especially near the nose. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
I ship to the continental USA only. Free shipping on the pipe.
Sordid history, guaranteed. You can fill in the blanks. Wicked piece.
