    No idea who made it, but she's a pretty piece! The "flag" motif was very popular and it's not suprising to see it on a pipe bowl.

    The clay pipe goes back a ways and dating it could be difficult...

    Is it a white clay pipe? Are there mold lines on the bowl? Are there maker's marks on the little plug that sticks out on the bottom? Is it well used and have lots of tobacco stain?

    There never was a flag designed like that... I feel this is strictly a decorative motif.
