    Bone or Clay Tobacco Pipe?

    Hello folks. This was found by my grandfather 50-60 or more yrs ago. He believed it may have been made/used by the early Europeans to trade with the Ojibway Navtives of our area. He never did find the pipe stem. Hard to see in crappy pics but there are what looks like three leafed clover on stems surrounding the lady w/ harp. Anyone with knowledge/info??
    Thanks.

    Hello TJE,

    It's an Irish themed pipe, made from kaolin type clay.



    "Nice old pipe bowl with an Irish theme dating from c.1880-1920. There is a harp on each side and plant decorations on the bowl seams and spur. Popular with Irish people 100 years ago and just as much today." Clay Pipes for Sale
