On page 55 of Jean Scott's book "STANHOPES A CLOSER VIEW", it shows similar styles of tobacco holders that imitate this piece BUT next to it shows a needle guard that is just like the horn of this pipe which is a genuine chamois hoof & GOAT horn. This holder dates c1880 and is 2 pieces that form a working but unused pipe and from Switzerland. The stanhope is found near the tip of the horn & shows a pair of nudes. This is a very RARE piece. I could not find any photos of this horn used a s a pipe specifically so it would make a fabulous RARE addition to any Stanhope or tobacco product collection..
