You can get a uranium light or an opium pipe, or stick to a more sedate vase, painted with a single hair.
Those are the wonders of the Ballarat Antique Fair.
Nadiene Stewart explained the uranium glass – a former car battery from the Depression-era – was not dangerous but lit up with a black light.
“It’s perfectly safe,” she said.
Ms Stewart was one of 150 sellers and dealers at the Ballarat Exhibition Centre over the long weekend.
Organiser John Markworth said the fair – continuing on Monday – had plenty for both casual visitors and serious collectors of ephemera.
“(There is) anything from a hat pin to a whole house full of furniture, there’s something for everybody,” he said.
At some stands you could buy the jewellery, its case and the cabinet.
Derek Greengrass, a dealer from Sydney, said his favourite item was an antique ivory walking stick with three bulldogs on the handle.
Another stand-out of his was a horn-shaped Russian pipe (opium not included).
