This tavern pipe holder and stone pipe set were made by Chris Hays, Chris meticulously hand carved these four delicate stone pipes this concept is based from a original pipe-holder and pipe set dating from the Revolutionary War period held in a private collection. These simple elbow shaped pipes were polished to a high gloss finish. It draws upon the imagination why or how the original Kaolin Pipes were replaced. Was this piece made for trade to the Europeans or made by a Native American who adopted a European lifestyle? It will be on display in Gettysburg at the History Meets the Arts art show.
