Pipe in two parts with a long, cylindrical, wooden stem that tapers at one end to fit into the stem. This has become blackened through use. The bowl is conical and shows signs of use. The stem connection is cylindrical and protrudes from the bowl at a 45 degree angle. The front of the bowl has a raised strip the follows the line of the bowl, over the bend and up the back of the stem connection, with the back section having incised cross-hatching. Inside the stem connection is some white and pale green thread, that was probably used as wadding.
