  • Colonial Trade Pipe and Pot Pieces

    Found this morning at two different locations. I have found a few stems and elbows but never the whole bowl. I was stoked. Lots of sherds today. Beautiful weather. The piece with drilled holes, I don't know. It looks like marble and sides are very flat.( I have another larger piece that I thought perhaps was part of old headstone. Any thoughts?

    That bowl is way neat. Not sure if you already do, but have you ever considered trying a machine in that area?

          Unique pipe. I can't imagine finding that many sherds.

            Cool designs on the shards, I’ve never seen an old clay pipe with a hand stem. Very cool!

              The sherd in question I believe is a piece of crockery which probably dates with the pipe bowl which is a really nice find. I've never found one.

                  Rex from the UK responded:
                  Many thanks for your email and image. Yes, you have the bowl of a "Hand and Tankard" pipe, similar to the ones I produce. This pipe design was popular in the UK in the 19th and early Centuries, and made by several pipemakers. The one you have did not come from the mould I possess. It was probably exported from the UK although possibly made in the US by a "colonial" settler.
