Collection of Hand Carved Indian Bone Pipes
- Source: eBay
Collection of bone pipes. I do not know anything about pipes. I work as a gemologist and I am selling these items for a client. These were an inheritance. T are 4 different hand carved bone pipes. Each pipe has a very distinct etching or carving on them. Please see my enlarged eBay photos for a better idea of the designs.I believe that these pipes are hand made by either American Indians or Mexican American Indians. The previous owner thought that they may be Navajo Indian pipes. The pipes measure approximately 7.0" - 7.50" in height and approximately 1.35"-1.75" in width. Two of the pipes smell like they were well used (they still smell like pipe tobacco) the other two do not have a distinct odor. These pipes will be shipped Priority Mail with delivery confirmation. Insurance is additional. No reserve. Good luck bidding.
