Description

Chinese Qing dynasty pre-1900 opium tool chatelaine - a tool kit that would have hung on a belt. The tools were used to clean and fill an opium pipe. On this chatelaine the tweezers were used to put a small amount of opium in the pipe damper (bowl), the small spoon was used to tamp the opium in the damper, and the pointed tool was used to clean out the hole in the opium damper

The outer tools feature hands gripping the ring. All three tools are shaped and carved. The tweezer tool has a ring to open or close its reach. This piece has a lovely central woven ring.

Dimensions: 19cm long, 3.5cm wide at the large ring.

I have not cleaned off the patina on this piece, it is heavily aged but structurally perfect.

In the 1970s when China first opened its doors to the world, these ornamental pieces were purchased at the fair they offered to the trade, in Beijing.
