19th century opium boxes
Opium containers can be any size depending how much the owner wants to smoke or how big his habit is. They range from round buffalo horn containers 4" in diameter and 1" high to very small containers 1"X1". As in all opium art these containers are excellent workmanship made from silver, copper, buffalo horn, ivory and any material the artist wishes to use, heat not being a factor.
Many are engraved with every form of symbol much like bowls and pipe saddles. They have lovely scenes on them as well as poems and some wonderful colors.
