IT WAS CARVED FROM THE ROOT OF A HARD WOOD, IN THE DENSEST AREA OF THE TREE [HARDEST TO CARVE AS WELL]. DEFINITELY ANTIQUE, BUT EXACT AGE IS UNKNOWN. CARVED SUN MOTIF AT THE BASE OF THE STEM.WEAR PATTERN ALONG THE BALL'S BOTTOM PERIMETER INDICATE THAT IT POSSIBLY HAD A LONG, SECOND STEM, AND RESTED ON THE GROUND WHEN SMOKED. I SHOWED A PIPE EXPERT AND COLLECTOR, AND HE HAD A LESSER EXAMPLE IN HIS COLLECTION. IT IS IN FANTASTIC CONDITION, AND SHOWS INCREDIBLY WELL. IT MEASURES 6.5" IN LENGTH, 5" IN HEIGHT, AND IS NEARLY 4 ACROSS. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TRIBE IT CAME FROM, BUT ITS AGE AND AESTHETIC APPEAL ARE UNDENIABLE.
