The Penn Valley Pipes exclusive 15″ Colonial Tavern Pipe
The 15 inch Colonial Tavern Pipe was used in America in the 18th and early 19th centuries. The long stem was useful when the pipe was made available in a pub or tavern for patrons to use, since the end of the pipe could be snapped off to provide a clean mouthpiece for different smokers. The smaller 6-inch colonial style clay pipe was a personal version of the longer pipe. The smaller style is represented by the Old Dominion Williamsburg and the Dutch Gouda-style pipe was commonly used in the New Amsterdam colony on Manhattan and along the Hudson River in what is now New York State.
This pipe is similar in design to the old 16″ colonial tavern pipe which is no longer in production. This pipe is made exclusively for Penn Valley Pipes from hand-pressed clay.
