Item Description

The opium pipe is used to vaporize and inhale opium. The pipe consists of a long stem of almost half a meter, a pipe bowl in ceramic and a metal fitting (“saddle”), through which the pipe-bowl plugs into the pipe stem. The pipe is heated over a unique opium lamp. After several clouds of smoke, the pipe bowl is removed, and the ashes on the inside of the pipe are removed with a scraper. The traditional opium pipes were smoked while lying on a sofa or pillows.
