this is another of my little finds, it is a brass pipe, i think for opium or maybe tobacco?
it is designed as a dragon with and elephants trunk on its nose, which through a bit of research i have found that there was a myth regarding a dragon who hunted the elephant.
i'm not sure wether its chinese or indian?
there is no makers mark on it and i cant find another example, i dont think it has a great age but it is a interesting looking piece.
if you have any idea of where it may be from or who made it i would be much appreciative.
