Briar tobacco pipe, polished, electro-plated silver nickel joint band, short vulcanite mouthpiece, probably English, 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. It is shown here with two other briar tobacco pipes (A652832 and A652833).
