Lignum vitae smoking pipe
An exceptionally rare lignum pipe of unusual form. The perforated top with finial and ring turned decoration removes to reveal the tobacco chamber which in turn removes to reveal a smoke tube which travels up to the mouth piece and presumably gives access to cleaning. The thread borne mouthpiece is a sympathetic period replacement. In good condition and richly patinated. Circa 1800.
The wooden body is 15.5 cm long excluding the mouthpiece.
