Silver tobacco pipe with box, China, 1760-1837

Made entirely from silver, this pipe can be dismantled into four pieces to fit inside the wooden box. Originally from China, the pipe may well have been acquired by a traveller visiting the area. The records suggest that the pipe was checked by an assay office in Birmingham to gauge the quality of the metal.
