About this work


Shaped like a skull with glass eyes and white teeth, the bowl of the pipe was stuffed with shredded tobacco, lit and smoked. Like many other tobacco pipes made by Gambier of Paris (one of the largest manufacturers of tobacco pipes from the 1850s onwards), this example is carved from clay and has a short wooden stem. production details: Gambier, J Place made: Paris, Ville de Paris, Île-de-France, France
