Scope and content

The main body of the pipe is a thick cylindrical piece of wood which is brown in color and has a glossy finish on it. Both the ends of the pipe are slightly rounded and have a hole drilled through the center. Attached near one end of the pipe is a small brass metal bowl which looks are though it has been soldered onto the wood. The bowl is gold in color and has black build up within it. Wrapped around the base of this bowl and around part of the body of the pipe is a thin brown leather string presumably to help hold the bowl in place. This pipe looks are though it were handcrafted.
