Briar tobacco pipe, vulcanite mouthpiece in maroon leatherette case, English or French, 1890-1925
Briar pipes are made from ground level wood of the heath tree. The mouthpiece is made from vulcanite (hardened rubber) and is marked with the maker’s initials. Shredded tobacco is placed in the bowl of the pipe and lit, and the smoke inhaled through the mouthpiece. The pipe is carried around in a leather case. It is shown here with two other briar tobacco pipes (A652833 and A652838).
