Clay tobacco pipe in a carved wooden case, Europe, 1660-1800

Inside this carved wooden holder, shaped like a flintlock pistol, is an earlier clay pipe with a long mouthpiece. The pipe was probably made in England between 1660 and 1690. The later wooden case may be there to protect the clay pipe. Made sometime in the 1700s, the butt of the pistol has been shaped to resemble a woman’s head and neck.
