pipe (narcotics & intoxicants: smoking)

Large pipe made in at least five pieces of cherry wood. The large, round bowl has a groove round it near the base. The bowl has a small connection that fits into the stem holder which is made from a bent branch. This then screws into the main pipe them that has a raised ring in the middle and another near the turned mouthpiece. Most of the wood still has the bark on the outer surface, with turned sections revealing the wood underneath. The pipe has never been used.
label: yellow with black type
