pipe (narcotics & intoxicants: smoking)

A screw-in stone pipe lid. It is round and flat with a small spherical handle, surrounded by 5 small holes. There is a shallow indented border very close to the inside edge of the lid, this along with the holes makes it resemble a button when viewed from above.

There is part of an old display with the object. Printed in black on white, now yellowed paper it reads "[missing ] E BOWL. [missing] with screw cover. German. [missing ] d., 2 1/2 in. (Bragge Collection)." Then handwritten in black ink "A.H 18."
