Civil War era Military Motif - import PORCELAIN TOBACCO PIPE

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

A style initially made popular in this country by German immigrants, the use of this classic type by American Civil War troops has been well documented by period field photos and military camp excavation. The elongated porcelain bowl was joined to the cherry wood stem by means of a hollow V-shaped secondary bowl, this component intended to collect moisture and tobacco tar making for a fine smooth smoke. The mouthpiece is of natural horn and the bowl is generally capped by a hinged metal lid. Popular from the earlier 19th century and Civil War era through the later 1800s, the earliest of these bowls were hand painted as is this offering. The advent of color transfer printing in the later, mid 1800s, and the nearly universal use of that newly available medium to decorate these pipes, is a primary feature in determining whether such a pipe is pre or post-Civil War with hand painted examples as is offered here falling in the just pre and Civil War era. Especially desirable by virtue of the colorful and especially well done military battle scene, its overall condition and completeness this example will make an attractive addition to any tobacco and smoking grouping or simply as a stand-alone in a period personal grouping. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
