Long Tudor Clay Pipe



My long Tudor pipe is based on original pieces in my collection dating from around 1590-1610. These have tiny bowls the size of the tip of a finger that allow just a pinch of tobacco and are good for testing various flavours without tainting a larger bowl. Of course in the Tudor period tobacco was so expensive that few could afford to use more than a pinch now and then.

17th Century style WHITE clay pipe



This style pipe has a bowl form that would be suitable for the time period of 1630 through to 1670 so it covers quite a time range for re-enactments. The style would be more suited for a mid-range date of 1650, being larger for 1630 but small for 1670. These are short pieces pressed in the mould, then trimmed and I burnish these all over leaving them with a smooth finish. A line of milling is added to the rim as originals had.

17th Century Mariners Clay Pipe



I created this design several years ago based on original clay pipes in my collection made for early Dutch Mariners of the 17th Century. The original idea for this pipe is thought to have been based on the Biblical character of Jonah and the Whale, although I think the creature on the stem looks more like a sea serpent with scales and teeth, which a whale would not have. It might even be that they were first produced because of tales of early colonists in the Florida swamps who were confronted with alligators. Further still there are tales that this pipe represents Sir Walter Raleigh being vomited by an alligator because of the awful stench of tobacco on him! Either way my copy here based on originals is sure to thrill and make a great talking piece.

This design once again takes inspiration from original pieces in my collection dating from the mid to late 17th Century and brings them to life. Mulberry pipes were produced by several makers in England and they were a popular choice for smokers then as few clays were decorated at that time. I hope you will find it appeals in this Century too!

Dutch Short 18th Century Clay Pipe



This pipe is suitable for re-enactments of the 18th Century. The bowl form is a stylised version of the fashionable funnel/egg shaped bowls used by the Dutch during that period. Originals were often much longer than my version, but the length is very suitable being not too short for general use but not long enough to break too easily. There is a line of milling applied to the rim as originals had.

Mermaids & Pirates Clay Pipe



This design once again takes inspiration from original Dutch pipes dating from the early 18th Century and brings them to life in a new way. Original Dutch pipes are amazing to look at in that they sometimes contain all sorts of themes such as men and women or scenes of life at that time. The detailing is always well executed on such pipes. I bring you my own design here which portrays a swimming mermaid on one side and a pirate seated on a barrel with a bottle, glass of grog and a pipe. His ship is in the distance.

Faux Clay Pipes for Movie Maker's





One of the things I have noticed over the many years I have been providing clay pipes for Movies and TV is that in many background scenes the actors have their hand over the bowl of the pipe so all you see is the stem.
I have created this group of hand-made faux pipes specially for this purpose which is a cost effective way for you to have the appearance of clay pipes in the background scenes of some shots.

You get everything in the picture here for the price given. P&P on this group is charged at the usual cost for one just pipe!

Because these are all made by hand you get a fairly random selection of lengths, thicknesses, some being curved and others straight. These are solid pieces of clay with a flattened bend end at the bowl, they have no holes in them and no smoking chambers.

The base has a "slipper" shaped heel which makes a handy grip either while paking the pipe or smoking it.

Clay Pipe Stem Scraper



Specially formed metal wire for dealing with blockages which might occur in your pipe stem due to the build up of sticky resin. This wire will work for any pipes up to 12 inches in length. It is made to suit my own Dawnmist Studio products which have a bore size of 2mm or more. It might work for other clay pipes you have if the hole is large enough. The wire is 1mm diameter iron with a grip at one end and shaped edge at the other. It will also bend to suit curved pipes!

Push the wire carefully into the clay pipe stem until the obstruction is reached twisting to gradually slice through the sticky tar, then push up and down to remove the waste material.
If your clay pipe is longer than 12 inches I can make them up to the right length, just let me know.
Note the price of postage works out more economical when purchased with a clay pipe rather than on its own.

SPECIFICATIONS
Material: Iron
For stem lengths up to: 300mm (12 inches)
For stem bore diameter of: 2mm minimum

Price is for one wire.

Decorated Tudor clay pipe by Dr David Higgins



I have taken stock of a few decorated Tudor style clay pipes which were made by my friend Dr David Higgins. David usually writes reports on clay pipes for archaeological publications and now and then he makes a few of these lovely pipes.

This design is based on original English pipes of the 1580-1600 period and have really small bowls the size of the tip of a little finger. David has decorated the stem of each pipe by hand with an array of tiny stamps which really make these special. I was almost tempted to keep them all myself!

The pipes are burnished all over and have what he calls an antique finish which make them look a pleasant ivory white colour.

PIPE SPECIFICATIONS
Suitable for a Re-enactment date of: 1580-1600
Surface finish: hand-burnished giving a nice smooth quality
Length of Stem approx: 17cm (6 and a half inches)
Chamber diameter at rim approx: 7mm
Chamber depth approx: 17mm
Mouth-Tip finish: Not applicable
All pipes are suitable for smoking
