This beautiful Chinese opium pipe measures a full 14-inches long. With the dragon & phoenix overlaid both on the stem and on the pall at the end. The dragon & phoenix together represent the married state, male/female, yin/yang. Picture shows close-up and full view of same pipe (price is for one pipe).

Two-hundred years ago Britain started selling the Chinese opium from British India Ė to balance Londonís trade deficit of Chinese tea and silks. China didnít like foreignersí breaking their laws and causing widespread drug addiction. The destruction of 20,000 chests of opium in Guangzhou resulted, after British aggression, in Hong Kong becoming a crown colony.
