Complete Jacob Pipe by Wingender of Germany


Lovely complete clay pipe, bowl, wooden stem and Mouth piece (looks like horn), plus string. This is yet another version of the well collected and loved Jacob pipe which was produced all over Europe by lots of pipe makers. It was popular among smokers back in the 19th century and is still very desirable today. Over 200 types have been recorded! This is a nice version by the German firm of Wingender who operated in the 19th century and early 20th. I think a fair date for this one would be c.1870-1910. Formed in a three-part mould then all hand painted in coloured glazes. There is no damage to this one. Lovely display piece for any collection. Has been in my personal collection for about 15 years but I have so many Jacobs it is time to part with a few of them!

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.

This pipe bowl portrays Queen Alexandra and is marked on the stem concerning her coronation which was in 1901. Her husband Edward VII was crowned King on that date.

Turkish Region Levent Clay Pipe Bowl



Collectible style of clay pipe from the production centres of Turkey from the 19th century. I suggest a date of middle to late 19th century for this piece. These pipes were only made in that region and were produced in two parts joined together. They are very collectible because of the work that went into making them and finishing the clay off with very fine patterns on a highly hand-polished gobe-dipped surface. This piece is essential for any collection where clay pipes representing differing regions of Europe is needed or where admiration of pipe making skills is favoured. It has a makers mark on the side of the bowl in arabic writing. Sadly the bowl has suffered in a previous collection but has been lovingly repaired... part of the side fell away and has been stuck back on and there are two small pieces of the rim rebuilt in matching putty. Overall the damage does not look too displeasing at all.

Rare - London Drinking Man and Woman



Collectible clay pipe bowl from London dating from c.1815-1845. It depicts a celebrating woman and man with drink glasses and bottle. Over the woman are the words "GO IT" and over the man "BANG UP". I have no idea what this means, perhaps a phrase that was popular at the time in London connected with drinking or a celebration or personal ritual, perhaps song words? Maybe it celebrates the end of the Napoleonic Wars. I have only ever seen two of these in over 35 years of collecting and I have the other one so I consider it a rare design and I particularly enjoy these scenes of life in this time period shown on clay pipes. Makers initials on the spur on the base of the bowl are M M.


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.

Giant Exhibition Building pipe bowl with most of stem



This is a large "show pipe" which has the bowl and most of the stem, just the mouth end missing. The original design of this style of pipe was patented in the 1840's by a London pipe maker then other pipe makers produced similar pipes soon after and from then on through to the 1920's. This one depicts one of the 19th century Great Exhibition buildings of the time where inventions and industrial skills were shown off. Likely one of the exhibitions held in London shown here. The date of this actual pipe bowl likely between c.1860 and 1910. I am not sure which maker produced this one as several in England did this design. There is a small hand-made hole at the front of the pipe which someone made to hang it up on a wall in past times. Nice display piece!

Beautiful Hand-Painted Porcelain Stummel Pipe bowl - Large Size


An original porcelain "stummel" pipe bowl with incredible painted scene around the bowl. These originate from what is now the German region of Europe in the 19th century and these stummel styles of bowl were part of a larger pipe which had a socket and a stem. This pipe bowl is a much larger than normal size pieces as you can see from the scale in the images. The scene appears to be all hand-painted which means it likely dates from the middle of the 19th century when more skill went into producing them, rather than the later part of that century when more common transfer-printed versions were made - which makes it much more collectible.

I am not familiar with the theme of the painting but it looks like a post-medieval town theme with people having a good time and a man calling to a lady who is on her balcony. It is marvellous to look at this painting and see all the finer details - the application of colours and the way that the layers were added. The necklace on the balcony lady looks like it was painted using single strands of the artists brush. There is also a gold border on the pipe which is another feature on earlier more elaborate bowls of this type. The lid appears to be made of solid silver with a beautiful flower design although I have not been able to find any hall-mark on the metal.

There is a very fine hairline split running part way down one side of the bowl but it does not distract too much from the lovely painting and overall appearance. This pipe has been in my collection for a number of years and although I admire the workmanship my main love is in the simpler clay pipes which is why I am now parting with this one. I hope you will also have many years enjoying it.

I am open to offers on the price of this piece so do write to me thank you.

ARROW HEAD Iron c.800-1200 AD from Balkan Region



A lovely item which I have been holding on to for some time but interests have changed recently. I sold off several arrow heads several years ago but kept this nice one until now.

This was given to me with others about 15 years ago. I was told it came from farmland in the Balkan region of eastern Europe and dates from around 800-1400 AD although I have seen similar occasionally on e-bay shown as being Roman. I have not seen this shape as often as others.

It is forged from iron and it looks like it is not as common as others I have seen because this one appears to have been carefully forged in two parts with the hammered swallow-tail shaped head and a conical portion which would have fitted over a stick. Imagine the work that went into creating this complex shape!

The condition is as it was found, iron with a rusty surface. I recommend that if you purchase this item that you dip it in a fine mechanical oil to preserve the surface as occasional tiny particles fall off. The core of the metal looks fine but the surface rust is obviously delicate. Otherwise store it in a container with silica gel grains to absorb any moisture. I have had it for 15 years and little has come off it.

The ruler in the image shows the size in cm and inches.

BAR British Series 192, 1988.



The Archaeology of the Clay Tobacco Pipe. XI. Seventeenth and Eighteenth Century Tyneside Tobacco Pipe Makers and Tobacconists, by Lloyd Edwards.
This is a very hard to get hold of archaeological publication from 1988, and ideal study material for those specialising in the subject of regional clay tobacco pipes in the Tyneside area of England. The publication of 164 pages contains a lot of information relating to pipe makers and their marks as well as lists of the makers and the times they were operating - births, marriages, death etc. There is also a good section listing Tobacconists too. While there are no actual drawings of the pipes there are a great number of neat drawings of the marks from the pipes shown which can help in identification.
Condition of the book is very good indeed, hardly used.
21 x 29cm size with 164 pages, soft cover.

    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.
