Metal scraper with wooden case and sharpening stone.
When antiques become art... An opium pipe-bowl must be cleaned after several pipes have been smoked. This is done by scraping its insides clean of opium ash with a special tool made specifically for this purpose. They are like little works of art in themselves. Indeed there was a whole array of paraphernalia, and preparatory etiquette associated with smoking opium. Because opium has been a controlled substance for the last century, the pipes and accoutrements, including the scrapers are now quite rare and collectible.
This complete set of tools with box and stone sharpener in rare to the point of unique. Qute a find in the opium world.
