I recently purchased two hand made clay smoking pipes at an estate sale. This listing is for one of the pipes, the other one will be in a separate listing.
The seller stated the pipes belonged to her late husband. She said her husband always said that the pipes were made by his grandfather in the 1960s. The grandfather was Native American but she did not know which tribe he belonged to. The pipes were always kept wrapped and packed away in a little box.
The pipe in this listing is light brown or tan in color. It measures six inches long. The bowl portion stands just under an inch and a half tall and is one inch across the top. The stem measures almost five inches long. The top of the stem has a decorative design, but I don't know what the design signifies, if anything.
Looking in the bowl, there is no evidence of the pipe ever being used. It is in beyond wonderful condition with no chips, cracks, or breakage.
Buyer to pay USPS First Class Mail Parcel delivery charges of $4.99. Delivery is from Nevada.
SHIPPING COST INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can safely fit into a single box. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
