|More Chinese Gadget Canes (9197)|
The first and last have no squigals, except on the bowl of the pipe. The first one is definately a container made for another use. Its here because of the color and style of Chinese cloisonne. The second one has a beautiful hatpin inside the handle, and the last one, an opium pipe, has a very interesting pattern I haven't seen before, except on the bowl, which is very typical for the 1890's. The first two canes values are only worth what the sum of their parts are worth, because its so easy to make canes today that have separate items inside. The pipes value is unknown, because I have never seen one sell or an auction record of one selling. When this one is put up for sale, it should be sold at auction, I think it has a rarity rating of 4.
