I hate to say it, but I think they saw you coming!
I have seen dozens of these so-called 'opium pipes' in import/decorator stores and markets in Sydney, Australia, and in other cities. They are a great Vietnamese export item as they are small, look good and may have an interesting past.
None here were anything like $100 each. Most probably less than $20. And that's Australian dollars which are currently worth about 75 US cents.
Did you not consider that the reason it was in pristine condition was because it was brand new?
