CARVED ROSEWOOD CHURCHWARDEN
Unsmoked, decorated with leaves
and vulcanite bit

This 11 3/8 inch long pipe appears similar to those carved in Saint- Claude about 1890, see Museum of Tobacco Art & History Guide Book p.75. However it is carved from Rosewood and not Buryere. The shape is that of an English or Dutch clay pipe. The wooden part of the pipe is 6 3/4 inches long. The vulcanite is the early type which takes a very high polish. A bone screw is the connector. A minor flaw is the 1/4 inch chip on the spur which is best seen in photo 3. On the positive side is that the pipe is unsmoked! The target squares are 1 centimeter.
