A pipe tamper is used to pack the tobacco into the bowl of the pipe so that it burns more efficiently. This naïve late 19th century brass pipe tamper is in the form of a man in a half sitting pose, standing on a decorative stand which has a small flat disc at the base which would act as the tamper. The details of the clothing are good but the facial features are a little blurred which may be as a result of use. There are no maker’s marks visible but this would be an interesting addition to a collection of smoking and tobacco related items. The actual tamper has a small defect on the flat surface (see image). The crevices of the piece have a residue from past cleaning. Height 2.36 ins (6cm), diameter of base 0.86 ins (2.2cm). Weight 38 grams. This item can be seen in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 167.
