You are bidding on a pair of antique ceramic opium pots with lids.The larger pot is 29mmx29mm and the smaller 24mmx24mm.These two pots were found along the railway line in Hong Kong and would have been used by railway workers in about 1900 when the railway line was being built.Very rare to be found with intact lids which makes these highly collectible and an authentic addition to any collection.Such pots represent what would have been, in the late 1800s to early 1900s, a cheap and portable opium container which once emptied were thrown away.The inside of the pots is glazed and they have been cleaned so as to contain no residues.I guarantee the authenticity of the two pots and having found them buried next to the railway line myself,i can confidently offer a money back guarantee if you find them to be other than described.Items will be shipped to anyw in the world for US$8 via registered airmail and are packed proffesionally to avoid any damage.Please email me with any questions.I can accept cash (sent registered mail) and payments using the paypal system.Peace
