We were able to acquire a few of these Authentic Chinese Opium Damper Bowls. This Ceramic Damper Bowl measures about 3 1/8” across and stands approx. 1 3/4” tall. The "Outside" measurment of the Metal Collar on the bottom that attaches to the pipe shaft is approx. 5/8" in diameter. There are many beautiful designs as can be seen that are carved into the bottom side of this little work of art.
This is the style of damper you would normally find mounted midway on the shaft of an opium pipe.
The more financially well off (Chinese Upper Class) would use this type of damper bowl. This is an original 100 to 200+ year old antique damper, which date from sometime during the Qing Dynasty.
