Subject:Symbols on Opium Box
Posted By: Perro614 Wed, Apr 04, 2018 IP: 173.88.112.200

Hi, everyone. I collect opium antiques, and I've always wondered what the symbols on this box mean. Perhaps someone here could decipher them for me? Would it be possible to figure out the approximate age/origin of the box based on the symbols used on it?

I'm trying to compile some information on symbols used on opium smoking paraphernalia. Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give me!
