It is very rare to find a complete clay pipe as most were damaged and then thrown away. Sections of pipes have been found in archaeological digs. It is therefore very special to find not one, but three, complete and undamaged pipes that date to the nineteenth century. The front and back of the bowls have a delicate leaf pattern but otherwise the pipes are plain. Clay pipes are iconic in settler’s early history. These three examples are in very good condition for age and would make a fantastic addition to a collection of pipes or more general tobacciana, or used to complete an outfit for a re-enactment! Length of each is 8 ins. (20.3cm). Combined weight of three pipes 40 grams. These items appeared in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 169. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $35.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
