his Chinese Silver Ritual Minority Pipe and Tobacco Case is from the Miao Ethnic Minority group in the vicinity of Rong Jiang. The Miao people would have used this pipe for smoking tobacco and not opium. Made from silver alloy. This beautiful silver pipe has cleaning tools attached and a Carved Silver Buddha which made this pipe used for rituals and special occasions. This particular Buddha is called Pu-tai which represents happiness, generality and wealth and he is a protector of children as well as the poor and weak. These Buddha's today are found near the entrance of Chinese Buddhist Temples. They say that Pu-tai followed the spread of Buddhism into other parts of Asia. This pipe is beautifully hand- crafted. The pipe can unscrew for cleaning. Both men and women of the Hill Tribe members smoke pipes, and it is not unusual for Hill Tribe children to start smoking at the age of four. This is a beautiful and unique pipe and tobacco case with lots of culture and craftsmanship of the Hill Tribe artisans. This would be a wonderful addition to your collection
