"Not Hawks, but of the same era. Hawks signature is two "hawks" that look like crows, with a fleur de lis in center. Regal and Royal were two makers of this era, in USA. It may be very difficult to find exact maker, as information on this…"

"Fred, Opium was a gooey liquid, came in tiny glass bottles (I have 3 of them). A firebrand was placed inside the hole and the fumes came out which were then inhaled. One did not suck on it like a tobacco pipe."
