...people need help.
I sometimes look on ebay for opium stuff, and I'm never surprised that there are fakes on there, but I am surprised to see people bidding on them. Sometimes the bidding goes quite high. They're always labelled as "authentic," of course, and I wonder if the sellers really do think they have something that was once used by an actual opium smoker. Seriously, somebody needs to help people out. Somebody needs to write a guide to discerning authentic opium antiques from the fakes.
Those curved horn pipes hurt my eyes.
