This old carved wood and lacquered Japanese pipe is called a kiseru. This traditional pipe was used for smoking tobacco. The small bowl holds a small quantity of tobacco...a pinch that's rolled into a ball to fit in the bowl.

The pipe measures 16 1/2 inches long by about 3/4 inch wide. The back of the bowl shows chips off the lacquer with some retouched staining. The cord binding is still intact. The mouthpiece end also shows some nicks to the lacquer but no bite marks.

The pipe case measures 18 3/4 inches long by 2 inches high / wide. One hinged lock is intact...the other is missing but this stays closed. Some age-related dings to the wood case.

Overall, this is an old and interesting Japanese tobacco pipe...once a popular source of enjoyment and now a unique and rare smoking relic. Good (still functional) condition.
