Here you will find an ever changing selection of clay pipes which are surplus to my own personal study. Items might include earlier pieces dating back as far as c.1600, although the majority will date from the 17th-20th Century. More recent collectibles might include designs that are still made today using the original moulds. I sometimes also have books for sale. Have a browse through and if you need more help then do ask. You may order and pay immediately through the shopping basket system provided. Remember that my sold changes from month to month so do come back for another visit soon.

THREE Original Clay Pipes by William Tennant of Newcastle



Three complete original clay pipes made by the firm of William Tennant who operated in the north of England in Newcastle. A rough date of c.1880-1910 will apply to these.
An important group of items especially if you are researching the Tennant family ancestry and want examples of their products. Also ideal as pipes which can be used in reenactments. They are old items and have been used but are fairly clean so could be smoked. Note a very small chip on the rim of one of them marked Tennant & Son / Burns Cutty. Price includes P&P


Large group of Clay Pipe Stems



Everything in the photo is included. A large group of clay pipe stems dating from c.1690-1770 from a kiln site in Devon, UK. The stems have been washed. They could be used to study, make necklaces, or perhaps an art project.
Price includes P&P. Because this group weighs over 700 grams the postage covers most of the cost.
Please ensure if you are a non-UK mainland customer that you choose the currency that is applicable.


Complete Plain Pipe well smoked



Ideal for display or use as a prop. This pipe dates from c.1880-1925 and is complete. The bowl has a couple of fine hairline splits so I would not recommend actually smoking it. The place of manufacture in Manchester appears on one side.

circa 1680 and circa 1640 clay pipe bowls

Two older clay pipe bowls included. The one on the left comes from London, nice narrow shape and dates to around c.1680-1685. The smaller one on the right comes from fields around Exeter in Devon and dates from the English Civil War c.1640-1650


Group C - Pipe Bowls and Kiln Material



From field walking in North Devon. Several pipe bowls, one with makers mark of John Nott. There are also pieces of kiln muffle included. Date: c.1720-1740


Group of FIVE Dutch pipe bowls c.1680-1840



All from Holland. One the left c.1680-1690, then c.1740-1780 and the three on the right c.1780-1840. This purchase includes all shown in the photo as well as postage and packing. Makers marks on some.

Armorial Pipe bowl



A nice example of an armorial clay pipe bowl from the Thames in London.
Has a fleur de lis on the rear with a crown and rose decorations on the front seam. Date of c.1780-1810 on this one.
Price includes P&P


GIANT Pipe bowl



Made by myself, this is a piece of art based on a scaled up mid 17th century pipe shape. I made it by shaping the bowl on the potters wheel then added a heel and a portion of stem. Originally my aim had been to make a stem for it also but I only ever completed the bowl part. This item might appeal as an ornament for a shelf or decorative clay pipe feature in the garden for use as a plant pot perhaps. Note it is heavy so only available for mainland UK but if you are not in the UK and want to enquire then please write so that I can quote you for postage for non-UK locations. Please do not purchase it if you are a non-UK resident but do ask first. The coffee mug (not included but also made by myself) shows the scale of this item.

Two Complete Old Cutty Pipes



Two complete clay pipes dating from around 1880-1920. Made in the north of England though there is no makers name on these. One is marked Burn's Cutty on the stem and the other is plain. Cutty is the name given to short pipes of old times. Both are smoked by their original owners but are fairly clean with no tar so they could be smoked or used in a reenactment.


Giant French Pipe Bowl



Produced by the famous French firm of J.Gambier of Paris and dating from about 1860-1920 this is an unusual large pipe bowl. Gambier produced many thousands of designs right up until 1926 and their pipes have always been favoured by smokers at that time and are very collectible today. This pipe might appeal as a novelty item or if you are a Gambier pipe collector. The makers mark is on the stem. Pipes like these were produced mainly for show and as novelty items but were also passed around and smoked at clubs in the past. This one is quite heavy and has a nice smooth polished finish.

Reassembled Gouda Pipe



Made in Gouda in Holland in the c.1920-1950 period by the firm of Goedewaagen this pipe has broken into several pieces over the years and is now dowelled together for display using thin pieces of wood. The end portion of stem with mouth tip is missing, perhaps about 4 inches, then there is a glued/dowelled join and then another joint. This is still a considerable length pipe. The centre portion I have left with a gap so that it can be packed and posted safely and when you receive it you can push the stem together tightly. Obviously it can only be displayed, not smoked. The image shows the whole length and a close up of the bowl end and the paper label on the stem with makers logo.
Price includes P&P

    Clay Tobacco Pipes from Exeter and Topsham

    Printed A4 size Document with durable clear plastic thermal bound cover
    Suitable for researchers, archaeologists and students

    During 2001 I was granted permission from two land owners in the Exeter area to search plough soil for clay pipes. One of the sites was on a hill near an old farm just east of the city and the other site on fields by the river at Topsham. This is my own short archaeological report covering clay pipes from the two sites.
    Contains 26 pages of text including:
    • An overview of the Exeter area pipe making industry
    • About the two sites investigated
    • Notes about the pipes studied
    • Every pipe is numbered and a listing of features for each record is included
    • References
    • A simple bar chart of makers
    • A site location map
    • Site plans
    • 3 pages of black & white photo plates
    • 2 pages of colour plates including the cover photo
    • 6 pages of illustrated clay pipes found, scale 1:1
    Approx 100 clay pipes/pieces were drawn from the two sites, mostly of the 1600-1750 period and show the typical Exeter styles found. The predominant styles before about 1800 were plain with a line of milling around the rim and a large flat heel. It is hoped that this work will find it's place among other reports on regional English clay pipes and will compliment work by other researchers as well as shedding light on new bowl forms.
