    Above: A Late Woodland Vase Style Pipe from Fulton County, Indiana. It is made from Petosky Stone, which shows fossil coral inclusions. This small 2 3/4" in length pipe shows wonderful form. The Vase Pipe style continued to be utilized in Mississippian times. The pipe was found by Leroy Eshelman near the twin bridges on his family farm, six miles west of Rochester, Indiana, in 1935.

    An amazing Elbow style pipe that has broken in half and shows the internal drilling. This pipe is huge, measuring more than 6 inches in length. This remarkable pipe appears to have broken in ancient times, and was not sawed using modern machinery. Collection of Floyd Ritter, Collinsville, Illinois.
