Tavern Pipe Holder and Stone Pipes

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 June 16-18Th at the History Meets the Arts art show.
