Opiate Confection

Opiate Confection, hand rolled lozenges

Opiate confection, found in a 19th century medicine chest in nearly perfect condition, the actual ''confection'' looks herbal, smells warm and spicy, has a definite opium aroma, but no one used any, as all 12 are there.

The age is unknown, apart from being 19th century-the pharmacy these were made in has long gone, a small, 18th century shop of great charm, with bow windows, was photographed empty in 1900.
