Group of typical London clay pipe bowls dating from c.1630 through to c.1670. These show how the styles remained similar over the years but the bowls get bigger as tobacco got cheaper.

The style of bowl represented by the shapes in this group is typical for that area at that time so these are a good typology group.

From London this is half of an original pipe dating from c.1665-1675. It is a typical style from the city in that time period. Nice piece this which has 6 inches of stem remaining. In good condition and could actually be smoked if you want it as an authentic prop though I recommend washing it first as there is still a bit of mud inside the bowl from being buried for such a long time.

Complete Jacob Pipe by Wingender of Germany


Lovely complete clay pipe, bowl, wooden stem and Mouth piece (looks like horn), plus string. This is yet another version of the well collected and loved Jacob pipe which was produced all over Europe by lots of pipe makers. It was popular among smokers back in the 19th century and is still very desirable today. Over 200 types have been recorded! This is a nice version by the German firm of Wingender who operated in the 19th century and early 20th. I think a fair date for this one would be c.1870-1910. Formed in a three-part mould then all hand painted in coloured glazes. There is no damage to this one. Lovely display piece for any collection. Has been in my personal collection for about 15 years but I have so many Jacobs it is time to part with a few of them!

GIANT Pipe bowl



Made by myself, this is a piece of art based on a scaled up mid 17th century pipe shape. I made it by shaping the bowl on the potters wheel then added a heel and a portion of stem. Originally my aim had been to make a stem for it also but I only ever completed the bowl part. This item might appeal as an ornament for a shelf or decorative clay pipe feature in the garden for use as a plant pot perhaps. Note it is heavy so only available for mainland UK but if you are not in the UK and want to enquire then please write so that I can quote you for postage for non-UK locations. Please do not purchase it if you are a non-UK resident but do ask first. The coffee mug (not included but also made by myself) shows the scale of this item.

Giant French Pipe Bowl



Produced by the famous French firm of J.Gambier of Paris and dating from about 1860-1920 this is an unusual large pipe bowl. Gambier produced many thousands of designs right up until 1926 and their pipes have always been favoured by smokers at that time and are very collectible today. This pipe might appeal as a novelty item or if you are a Gambier pipe collector. The makers mark is on the stem. Pipes like these were produced mainly for show and as novelty items but were also passed around and smoked at clubs in the past. This one is quite heavy and has a nice smooth polished finish.

Giant Exhibition Building pipe bowl with most of stem



This is a large "show pipe" which has the bowl and most of the stem, just the mouth end missing. The original design of this style of pipe was patented in the 1840's by a London pipe maker then other pipe makers produced similar pipes soon after and from then on through to the 1920's. This one depicts one of the 19th century Great Exhibition buildings of the time where inventions and industrial skills were shown off. Likely one of the exhibitions held in London shown here. The date of this actual pipe bowl likely between c.1860 and 1910. I am not sure which maker produced this one as several in England did this design. There is a small hand-made hole at the front of the pipe which someone made to hang it up on a wall in past times. Nice display piece!

The Archaeology of the Clay Tobacco Pipe. XI. Seventeenth and Eighteenth Century Tyneside Tobacco Pipe Makers and Tobacconists, by Lloyd Edwards.
This is a very hard to get hold of archaeological publication from 1988, and ideal study material for those specialising in the subject of regional clay tobacco pipes in the Tyneside area of England. The publication of 164 pages contains a lot of information relating to pipe makers and their marks as well as lists of the makers and the times they were operating - births, marriages, death etc. There is also a good section listing Tobacconists too. While there are no actual drawings of the pipes there are a great number of neat drawings of the marks from the pipes shown which can help in identification.
Condition of the book is very good indeed, hardly used.

    Clay Tobacco Pipes from Exeter and Topsham

    Printed A4 size Document with durable clear plastic thermal bound cover
    Suitable for researchers, archaeologists and students

    During 2001 I was granted permission from two land owners in the Exeter area to search plough soil for clay pipes. One of the sites was on a hill near an old farm just east of the city and the other site on fields by the river at Topsham. This is my own short archaeological report covering clay pipes from the two sites.
    Contains 26 pages of text including:
    • An overview of the Exeter area pipe making industry
    • About the two sites investigated
    • Notes about the pipes studied
    • Every pipe is numbered and a listing of features for each record is included
    • References
    • A simple bar chart of makers
    • A site location map
    • Site plans
    • 3 pages of black & white photo plates
    • 2 pages of colour plates including the cover photo
    • 6 pages of illustrated clay pipes found, scale 1:1
    Approx 100 clay pipes/pieces were drawn from the two sites, mostly of the 1600-1750 period and show the typical Exeter styles found. The predominant styles before about 1800 were plain with a line of milling around the rim and a large flat heel. It is hoped that this work will find it's place among other reports on regional English clay pipes and will compliment work by other researchers as well as shedding light on new bowl forms.
